I had my annual long weekend away with friends in March to sew and catch up. Life
is busy was chaos and I didn't do any pre cutting before going away. But I had the Mini Quick Curve ruler, Mini Wonderful Curves book and fabric I purchased from Periwinkle Patchwork packed together and I made this pattern called Sea Glass. I love this book, but a lot of the quilts are wall hanging size, and this pattern size is a modest 28" x 35". I brought extra fabric though and so far I have added a extra row on one side and bottom. They are four inch blocks, so need to add more to make it a large lap sized quilt.
Anyway that is on the to do list - as I girl cannot work on one quilt alone while on camp! And there was only so much laying out room I could hog!
Sea Glass was only on my "to do list" since Christmas. But this cutie has been waiting patiently for several years! Vicki gifted me a Moda Frivols No. 5 tin - French General print Petite Prints Deux, and the pattern is called Atelier - finished size is 30 x 33".
Frivol tins hold pre cut 7" squares of fabric and the pattern warned that you needed to be very careful to not make a cutting mistake with the red....but I used every skerrick of the indigo & white and had red left over...go figure! I love this little quilt and looking forward to having it finished so I can display it on my sea trunk coffee table.
For my third project I had sewn an extra seam on all the flippy triangle corners for my Kim Diehl Warm Regards border and collected all the half square triangles in a little bag. I trimmed them and sewed them into Broken Dishes for a new mini. I didn't take any extra fabric to make a border and I am still debating if it needs one or not.
During the weekend I made one block from the Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern Posh Petals. I had all the fabric I had purchased in January at Elm Grove Quilts, but had not brought sufficient stash to supplement the scrappy look I wanted. These are large blocks at 16" square, but my sample was quarter of an inch too small. So I need to either make it into a mini or unpick and reset my seam allowance...we will see which one wins!
Happy quilting Sue.
