I'm working on the pattern for this quilt as I work on it but if you want to get a head start, you will need a stack of 3" finished pink nine patch blocks. One hundred of them to be precise. I made all of my blocks as leaders and enders so when I was ready to make this quilt I just went to my stash of finished nine patch blocks and pulled out all of the pink blocks. I also threw in some made of yellows and oranges to give a little sparkle.
You'll also need 12 red nine patches and a big pile of half square triangles that finish at 1" (1 1/2" with seam allowances). I made the half square triangles out of scrap prints of all colours and I used a white tone on tone print in each.
I'll keep working on the quilt and the pattern over the next couple of weeks.
I received a lovely pink envelope in the mail on Friday afternoon and inside was the tote bag that was made for me by my secret partner, Vickie. You can visit her blog here. Inside the bag were some wonderful little gifts! I hope my partner
One of the gifts is an Easy Dresden ruler by Wrights. I notice that Vickie has a beautiful quilt pattern on her blog that makes use of this very ruler and I might just give it a go! The name of the quilt pattern is Butter and Marmalade. It looks like and easy fun quilt! I've got lots of feedsack prints and this would be a great way to use some of them!
My tote bag is very pretty and I've already got it loaded up with a hand sewing project and I've been taking it with me each time I go to visit my Mom. Thanks Vickie! If Lia organizes another swap I think I will participate!
And now for a quick look at what is blooming today!
Weeds!!!!! But up close they are very weird looking!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
