Here is my little quilt I whipped up yesterday from the fabrics I showed the other day. I wanted to play with utility quilting using valdani pearle cotton I have heard so much about. These are the ones I bought at the Lancaster quilt show , luckily one of them works ! Carolyn is writing a book on utility quilting, you can bet I will be first in line to buy one! I am fascinated with this type of quilting now. I have seen it used in so many antique quilts.
This is my friend Patty's Nine Patch and Crossroads quilt.
She made this quilt using a pattern from Betsy's book, Gone To Texas.
Patty was able to go shopping where Betsy works, Lone Star House of Quilts . She offered to send me her left over fabrics when I said oh now I have to make this quilt too! I am thrilled to start this quilt as it is one I have wanted to make from the book! How lucky am I??? Thanks Patty!
oh and yes I am still working on the drunkard path blocks, its nice to have a piecing project on the go now too!
too bad I didn't have two design walls though.
