We’re on a Roll is sure to make everyone smile! This pattern is due to arrive April 8 barring any unforeseen circumstances! My choice? I, like all of you, am finishing up a lot of unfinished projects. Just one of these blocks would make a great label for the back of every quilt I finish during the quarantine! Just write on the paper the details. I’m not the only one that just finished a quilt started at least 14 years ago…..
Isolation these days is a fact of life. But how are we to deal with it? In my case, I thought it would be fun to revisit an ancient tradition – May Day. On the first of May, people would anonymously leave flowers or sweets on the doorsteps of friends. For my purposes, I am leaving A Tisket A Tasket – 2 Fat Quarter Basket!
All quilters have a ton of fat quarters – and this cute basket is made from two. One for the ties and one for the body and lining. These are fast, easy projects. You can make a dozen of them in an afternoon!
I am going to make two per person – one to fill and leave for a friend or family member. And one to tuck inside for them to fill and share – my version of pay it forward. My grandchildren are great bakers so they can fill them with sweets.
Why not add a personal letter as well? With social distancing, what a great way to bring a smile to neighbors and friends!
Cotton Ginnys does cute so well – and this has to be the cutest!
If this place mat or table runner doesn’t make you smile in the morning, nothing will! We even have some chicken wire fabric from Elizabeth Studio to go with it! But checks, stripes and polka dots would be just as charming!
What a great combination! AND, a great choice for a make it/take it class! They could easily finish it in an afternoon! The fabric is in stock now, the pattern is due later this month so order now!
The folks at Country Threads have put together my favorite kind of book. They have combined wonderful reproduction style quilts with stories of unsung heroines of the Civil War.
A little eye candy….
These stunning quilts are the icing on the cake of some great stories! Reach back in time and visit 14 heroines of the Civil War. Then, create an array of beautiful quilts inspired by the stories of these courageous women. From a simple string quilt to spectacular scrap quilts bursting with hundreds of fabrics, each project captures the look of antique quilts from the era. Authentic photos and true accounts of Civil War history will draw you right in!
