TA DA!!! 9 days later all the blocks are made and it will be a quilt top this week. Next time you will see this quilt ( I figure you must be tired of seeing it already!) it will be bound and ready for use! For some reason I felt like I was on a mission to make this quilt, I couldn't wait to come in here and sew every minute I had! I started this quilt with the pattern from Betsy Chutchian's pattern in her book Gone to Texas. Now back to my multiple projects and my passion for little quilts! So I wanted to share with you what's on my cutting board this morning a little quilt from the new book by Kathleen Tracy The Civil War Sewing Circle. If you like little quilts you will love this book like I do.
When I bought this book earlier in the week this was the first quilt I said oh I have to make that! I cut for it while I was cutting for my blocks.
I can't decide if I like it without the little cornerstones or with. Maybe I need to make them both!
Lucky for me I have a box full of little squares so I can play a little bit more and find just the right ones for this little quilt if I decide I want them in there. Which do you like better?
I cut squares from every fabric I take out for my postage stamp quilt, now that I have a lot in my storage box I will make a few more. Hopefully later in the week and I will share them with you.
Here's Kathy's quilt in the book...as you know I hardly ever make a quilt from a pattern just the way it is, I tend to use it for inspiration and make it fit my needs or likes :) Yes I changed the size of the blocks too! I wanted smaller for my wall! Yet it still LOOKS like her quilt that I just really liked!
