What a nice way to start the New Year. One item less on my 2012 Works in Progress List. This one is Vintage Quilts Throw.
This little quilt started as a pieces that came in a scrap bag. They were small panels with these cute quilt scenes on them.
At first I was going to make potholders out of them, but that would ruin them too quickly and I really liked them.
But, how do you make a quilt out of 5 pieces?
Then, I stumbled across Sheri K. Falls’ This and That Patterns and found this FREE pattern there. It called for six stitchery blocks and in different sizes, but that could be overcome.
I stitched up this little saying as one block.
Changed the border size on a few blocks to make them fit the pattern.
Dug through scraps to come up with the right colors.
Got really brave with quilting.
Even added a label! (See that little thing in the upper corner. That still needs to be stitched down.)
One down, thirteen to go.
