Well, today I should say...I love patchwork. I spent the morning in my quilt studio working on putting my latest doll's quilt together. In my last blog post, I told you about taking the corners of some leftover strips from my medallion quilt to create a new little quilt.
So I started sewing the 32 half square triangle blocks together to form the first part of the quilt. It needed more so I went to look through the bits of leftover fabrics from the same medallion quilt. Choose a basket block to add to the others, add some strips for borders on the sides and.....
.....this is the result! I simple and sweet little doll quilt. Yes, I did make a mistake with the placement of a few of the squares deliberately. I find this adds to a vintage look. The off set set up of the blocks reminds me of cutter quilts.
I do not, of course, only love quilting. A UFO from a year ago has come out to be worked on. A year ago this month, I became too ill to continue with this online SAL. It will be finished now though and added to my sampler wall. I just love this sampler. I see a pink theme going on, you too? But have no fear...my next quilt does not have a bit of pink in it.
