I did finally get a picture of the Primitive Gatherings summer freebie wool appliqué quilt I've been working on during our drives up to Oregon. All 12 of the little blocks have been done (they are 5" finished!). I'm now working on the center block and only have the leaves left. I had intended to work on the outside borders on the way home until I realized I need to make a bazillion tiny half square triangles first. I think they finish at 1/2"! I'm using the Primitive Gatherings triangle papers for them. I think it's likely I'll add more flowers and leaves to the outside border, which I think looks a little naked compared to the small blocks. Don't you??
Isn't this a great little quilt??
I ran into Bend yesterday and had to stop at Quilt Works to see their current exhibit. I found one quilt I felt I wanted to take a picture of to share with you:
I think the pattern is Gentleman's Fancy and it's one I've always wanted to make. Maybe this would be the perfect quilt along I've been wanting to organize. Anybody interested in it?? It'd be in 3 steps, with weeks in between. You could make it any size you wanted but I'd probably make the individual blocks 3" so the entire unit would be 15". Any smaller and you'd be using fractions, which isn't my favorite thing.
Let's say starting March 1st?? Let me know what you think.
Back to the half square triangles for the appliqué quilt and the Triangle Primitives I've been working on as well. Have a great weekend. I wish I had been able to go to Washington DC for the women's march. If you went, I'd love to hear about it.
