Today, March 19, is Worldwide Quilting Day. I hope you were able to celebrate in a very quilty way.
The weather was lovely and I had errands and chores, but on a beautiful spring day, who minds that?
While running errands I went to pick up some scraps that I had been offered. Jackpot! I didn’t want all the fabric in the two large bags and one box, but there was some that just suited me.
Part of it was a pile of 30’s reproduction fabrics. How perfect! I was wanting to join in the Splendid Sampler series, but hadn’t felt inspired on fabric selection. This is just what I needed. So, part of my celebration today was starting a new project. I plan to make two of each block that interests me. I do not feel compelled to make all of the blocks, but by making two of the ones I do like, I am sure to end up with enough blocks for a fair sized quilt at the end. It will be fun to find out.
About 2 weeks ago I started a baby quilt for a fellow teacher and his wife. Crayons! All six crayons are created now and I am assembling the top. That is worth celebrating! (No pattern, but there are similar ideas out there–just do a search for “crayon quilt.”)
Friday is quickly becoming my favorite day of the week because that is when the new blocks for Circa 2016 are released by Temecula Quilt Company. Had to work on those, too.
And, finally, a new leader-ender quilt since I have finished all my Hundred Patch blocks. I call it Sweet Sixteen. I don’t know how large this one will be either. Probably until I am tired of it. It is based on 2-inch squares and would require 125 blocks for a queen size finished.
So, I have celebrated in style! Thanks for sharing in the joy of quilting with me.
