I taught the Magic Number Quilt last weekend and wanted to create a sample that had blocks with defined edges. I wished later I would have gone rectangular with the blocks, but another time. This is a perfect square baby quilt.
I now have a scrappy version (Scrappy Sunshine)
and a floating block (Smitten Kitten) example which I use to talk about adding rectangles to the equation.
I’m a little obsessed with this Heather Ross Briar Patch line. So I picked up another yard of each of the berries from Quilt Sandwich. I noticed the others of the line are easier to come by but the berries were disappearing.
I’m still trying to make some time to work on my Sparkle Punch in between my Seattle MQG binary quilt which might not be done in time for the exhibit at Island Quilter in January. It would be fun to have another example of how to use stitch and flip triangles for my upcoming class. In my unfocused way I started dreaming of a Sparkle Punch Christmas quilt, those prints are a little more difficult to translate into projects.
What gifts are you crafting this year?
