|chain piecing patches|
Instead, I made one hundred half square triangles in only two fabrics. Now what? Bear's Paw? Pinwheels? Broken dishes? I decided on 8 pointed stars.
|yes, my poor shamrock is reviving!|
Well, guess what? The top is DONE. No kidding! Of course the camera died, but here are the blocks. The points all matched up so well!! Perhaps I'll add a pretty border to this top. I have only done borders twice out of the 70+ quilts I've made. I guess I'm just not a border person.
|ready & waiting for some pretty stitches!|
I plan to either hand stitch this or free motion, but I will use pretty colored threads to embellish it. I think it's going to be so pretty. Done in a day! (Thank you to my children who just discovered a new card game.) I think this one will hang at the guild's bookstore display in the spring.
GASP... "spring"? Did I say that? I barely recall what spring feels like. It's been a cold cold dark & snowy winter. I think this quilt was necessary to perk me up. Though I didn't pow through that stash like I planned, this feels soooo good to have created. ; )
