I would have posted it sooner but I couldn’t find my camera. I had taken pictures last night. Decided to give up and take another picture using a different camera and couldn’t find another memory stick. The only one that isn’t lost was in the lost camera so I guess technically, it was lost too. Finally found the camera and Vince and I have been sitting here for an hour trying to think of a name for the quilt. Any suggestions? You don’t want to hear what we came up with. I stand by my original opinion that whoever came up with the idea to name quilts should be . . should have moths in their stash! Not really . . I hate moths! I had pantry moths once. They were horrible and I was so afraid they’d turn into cotton fabric eating moths but they didn’t. They’re gone now if you’re wondering . . though I doubt you care about my infestation of bugs! But, can you please think of a name for this quilt? Then will you please think of a name for every future quilt I make? Thanks!
And then .. I thought I had posted this entry several hours ago and just realized I’d only saved it as a draft. Maybe I should give up before I even start! Nope, I’m not a quitter!
Anyway . . here’s the quilt:
If you follow the instructions, the quilt will measure 63″ x 81″. It can easily be made larger. If you stick with the same size blocks and sashing, and use the same size borders I have suggested, the pieced border will fit — with additional blocks needed though.
In this quilt, I used white as the light background, yellow as the dark background and purple as the border fabric.
I’m making a second one and these are the fabrics I’m using:
The lightest cream, on the right side, is my light background, the tan in between the light cream and red is my darker background and the red is my border fabric.
Here’s the amount of fabric you will need:
Light Background – 2 yards
Darker Background – 1-3/4 yards
Border Fabric – 1-1/4 yards
Binding Fabric – 5/8 yard
Variety of colored fabrics – fat quarters will work
In the first quilt, I used brights. In the second quilt, I’m using more muted darker colors.
Instructions will begin on Monday. There are 12 or 13 hours. There were 12 but then I realized I’d left out Hour #3 so I fixed that and now I don’t remember how many hours I ended up with. Guess it could mean there are only 11 hours. It’s all on my other computer. We’ll be done in either 11, 12 or 13 hours!
Who’s going to participate with me?
