as I look out my window…
So I am piecing quilt tops. My plan was to use up a bunch of these really old scraps. This is starting to sound like an annual theme to me. I’ve focussed on using up mauves with Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend and then pastels with Sweet Strings. This time the focus was on purples but it looks like I actually pulled a lot of blues, too. It feels like Time Traveling because many/most of these date back to the 1980s and have been seen in dozens of quilts and even some clothes! This is lap quilt sized coming in at 60″ x 72″.
And as long as I have all this fabric scattered about… I decided to play with 1 1/2″ finished squares and some 3″ finished half squared triangle blocks. I know this is a classic quilt pattern, I just can’t remember its name. Do you know?
So that’s what I’m doing, while I’m suffering from cabin fever, how about you???
