a little progress
Two little quilts back from the machine quilter, just how cute are those little baptist fans?
making progress on my hand appliqued blocks, 4 more to go. I am excited to finish this as I have a few new antique quilts I want to reproduce! I am trying to stay focused and finish this one first before starting something new (old!).
only a few more blocks to make, really happy with the way this quilt is turning out. I love how the different value of cheddars keeps the eye moving around the quilt.
so far I have only repeated the red fabrics once, by mistake I must add. I was trying to use a different red for each block, the cheddars have been repeated. Now to decide do I keep the two reds in there?
Did you see on Betsy's blog she also used this antique quilt from For Purpose and Pleasure book by Sandi Fox as isnpiration for a little quilt ? Its adorable and now I have to make a small one too for my wall of little quilts! Julia made the quilt for her and I just love it. Isn't it great that we are all inspired by antique quilts?
