Hello and happy Tuesday evening!
When last we spoke, I was headed back to the sewing room to tend to a quilt in progress!
My indigo and white Double T blocks have been
But no more...
It needs a good stiff press,
but otherwise it's done and ready for quilting!
I based this quilt on a photo of an antique quilt that Betsy Chutchian had pinned on Pinterest
a while back. Indigo double T blocks set on point with a gray fabric.
Oh my gosh, as I look at that photo, it sure needs some trimming a good pressing!
Ignore that! haha!
I did a simple 3 x 4 set (12" blocks w/a 17" diagonal measurement) and will quilt it like the inspiration photo and
it will be bound in an indigo print. Perfect size for the couch!
When I finished this up last night, I looked over and realized I
haven't shown you the finished cheddar bowties gifted to me on my birthday
by my friend, Karen!
While I wanted to use up as many of the blocks as possible,
I did NOT want to piece any more. I'm kind of lazy that way sometimes!
So I sewed pairs and then pairs and then pairs
and ended up with a long skinny quilt top.
Not only was I too lazy to make more blocks,
I was also too lazy to unsew ANYTHING, so I left it long and skinny
and did a little stash diving to find some border fabric.
Not only did this great red repro print echo the cheddar in the blocks,
I also thought the vertical nature of the print was perfect since
I only intended to add borders on the sides!
Wow my flash really messes up that lovely cheddar!
This photo is more accurate...
So there you have it.
A couple more quilt tops to add to the pile!
Now I have only an applique quilt in progress,
so I'll have to think about what my next patchwork project will be!
I've got several in mind!
