One of the first quilts I ever made was Denyse Schmidt’s What a Bunch of Squares. I was new to quilt making and was so excited that I created the templates and cut out most of the pieces for three of these quilts before constructing the first block.
It became obvious after the construction of the first block that templates are a waste of time when piecing such a simple quilt. I’m good at wasting time without adding template construction to my life.
Now those old cut pieces are taking block shape with some new woven fabric additions. It was difficult to capture the texture in a photograph on a rainy Seattle day, but blocked with the Essex linen it certainly isn’t lacking.
I also am hoping to make it to some Halloween sewing in a few days with this Martinique Silky Woven Shell. There is the smallest pin dot on this fabric. Everything about it is soft. The drape, the pink color and the dot.
