I was put on “house arrest” last week as weeks of messing around with a cold-sinus infection-laryngitis-cough evolved into pneumonia. Again. Sometimes it is hard to be grateful for circumstances.
But, on the bright side, between resting and napping and doing nothing, I did get a lot of sewing time. I tidied my sewing room and evaluated projects.
Over a year ago, I won the Charleston Pavement pattern from Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts. (She is the same one who sponsors the 350 block project.) There was a handy pile of inherited scraps as a starting point. There WERE a few things to be grateful for.
And the top is a finish! (Pictures are a little tough right now because we have about 16″ of snow on the ground and it is snowing hard. But that isn’t important.)
I am so pleased. I highly recommend the pattern. It would make a great Quilt of Valor, or wedding quilt (which is what this one is), or even an Eye-Spy. It can use precut jelly roll (2-1/2″) strips or scraps. Really, just so versatile. This is one I will definitely make again.
Go check out Shelly’s store and get yourself a Charleston Pavement pattern. You’ll be glad you did.
