Years ago Sparkle Jane took a notion and decided to cut 1-1/4″ squares. 1-1/4″?!? That is REALLY small. But, they sat in this box and after a while started to hum at me. Do projects ever do that to you? Just sort of seem to hum in the back of your mind, “I could be beautiful. Give me a chance.”
So, I started to piece, a little aimlessly at first. Just as a leader-ender project. Before I knew it, I was making 25-patches. Then, there were 25 of them.
By then there was too much invested to stop.
Next step was a sort of economy block layout. But, they didn’t feel finished.
Add some star points and fancy corners and you get….
I originally called it “Tiny,” but now I call it “Star Kissed.” I am not sure that is its real name, though.
I visualize it with white sashing and tiny colored corner stones. And probably a really cool border of some kind.
This block is 10″, but it could easily be resized to sensible proportions based on, say, 2″ or 2-1/2″ squares in the center. What do you think?
***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER.***
People are kind to share their scraps and leftovers with me. Much of it is received with joy. However, not all of it is things that I will use in the near future. These UFO’s deserve a home where they will be loved and used. Like YOURS!
Giveaway #4 is a large pile of coordinated scraps, blocks and yardage. Also, a bundle of precut 1-1/2″ strips. There is easily enough to make a large size throw, or maybe even a twin size top.
If this is something you would love, please leave a comment below. I will draw a winner Saturday, December 6.
If you can afford to help with postage, that would be great. This should fit in a medium priority mail box, which costs $14.35. I will get it in the mail as soon as possible after the end of the giveaway.
There is sewing happening. And it is all throwback sewing…taking the time to revisit and enjoy tutorials I developed years ago.
These are the hundred patch centers of a Hundred Patch quilt. All the patches are done and the pieced sashing, too. Just need to cut the background sashing and stitch it all together. This quilt is planned as a gift for a colleague at school.
This is the beginning of a Hundred Hugs quilt just because I found cute backing fabric and babies seem to come along regularly. That is a good enough reason.
While I do have ideas for some new designs, I have enjoyed revisiting old favorites. Nice to return to my roots.
