A Peek At My Next Project
These homespun fabrics are part of a foundation pieced quilt that I am working on and have been for some time. You see in going through my fabric closet I came across this blue box that was a bit heavy as it was stuffed full of these great fabrics. I knew I had it .... somewhere! The quilt within has been waiting to for completion for ... um ... well let's just say for a couple of years. Okay maybe more than a couple, maybe more like ... oh never mind I can't remember how many years and don't want to think about it! Anyhow it is seeing some daylight at long last. A commitment has been made to finish this quilt and I already have plans for the leftovers, how's that?
My husband purchased this group of fat quarters from Keepsake Quilts in New Hampshire as a gift for me one Christmas a number of years ago, The picture above is only a small portion of the group as part of the group is on the sewing table or in the machine being sewn. More pictures to be posted in the coming days. I find it interesting when the "parts" are posted and you can view the progress. Quilters are not always as patient as one might think (which is probably why they have so many UFO's floating around!) and will move from project to project. Or is that just all creative people?
Anyhow please come back and have a look at the blocks as they are finished and posted.
