After the fast quilt I had to make last week, I took time to finish hand-quilting and binding this doll quilt:
It is 17.5" x 21.5". This was a travel project for a while, English Paper Pieced diamonds from my scrap stash. I used a wool batt which is so lovely to hand quilt through. In between big quilts, I like to create these little ones, just for fun, and sometimes they become class samples.
My Lifetime Quilt is so bad--it's like Doritos--I cannot STOP!! As I cut up scraps for projects, I cut some of these baby HST (half square triangles), in pairs, right sides together, ready to piece. I find myself making more and more of the 10" blocks. Here are the 8 that are done so far:
That's 40" x 20" though these eight 10" blocks are not sewn together yet. Since I add more and more fabrics I figured it best to wait until the blocks are done so I can mix the fabrics all over the quilt. My plan is to make at least 64 of these blocks so this is just a good start. I love 'em!
And a new start, Circa 2016:
I know I shouldn't but I'm a Temecula Quilt Company junkie, I love each free project they offer. These little blocks are the first two installments of their little Circa 2016 Medallion sampler quilt, 48" x 55". These blocks finish at 2.25". Some blocks will be 3" finished. Simple instructions post each Friday--find out more here: Circa 2016.
