No, not a new life start – a new quilt…..
I have had the fabrics for this quilt for over a year, just waiting for the right inspiration to hit me. I stumbled on this block in Joan Wolfren’s “Make any block any size” book. It’s titled “Summer Winds”.
I normally only cut enough pieces to make one block… but this time, I decided to cut all the pieces for the entire quilt, then I made up one block to determine if I had to make adjustments in the way I was assembling this block. I knew that if I cut all the pieces, it would encourage me to complete the quilt, rather than put it away for ‘later’……… I will make all the HST’s then get all the flying geese units made, then I will start assembling the different sections by way of chain stitching. If all goes as planned…… I hope to have all the blocks assembled by this weekend. Then I will decide if I want to put sashing between the blocks or assemble the blocks and let the secondary pattern emerge.
I still have one more quilt for QFC to get quilted and that will leave the two to finish, then I’ll have 8 to send on to our next comfort cause. So guess I have enough to keep my busy for a few days…..
I tried a method of making a signature as explained by Karen over at Sew Many Ways – I don’t think I got my initial ‘section’ big enough, I see my “K” is a bit cut off
