I was pleasantly surprised. I love the little block and the fabric was very fresh and fun! Unfortunately there wasn't a whole lot of it but I love quick projects... even if it took me 3 months to tackle it! Once I got into it, the project didn't take a lot of time. I added a few of my own scraps and made a couple more blocks.
|I recently purchased Alex Anderson's book: "Start Quilting"; I mostly bought it for the block sample ideas. |
I hope to make a sampler quilt in the future with all the blocks I love.
I tried to quilt with a little more interest as well - free-motion with a plan! Little projects are a great way to practice. I think it turned out quite nice. The back shows it off.
|pssst.... as I mentioned, there wasn't a lot of fabric to work with and I ran out of binding. Hence the little piece added in!|
The finished table runner: I LOVE it and I hope I don't have to send it back to the owner of the fabric (well it's okay if I have to... maybe I will get my orphan blocks back as well in a finished project).
I think it looks perfect for welcoming back spring!
Moving right into my next project... I have a brand new nephew, wee Harvey, and he is getting a quilt made by Aunt Deb. I love love love making baby quilts. I bought a beautiful kona pastel rainbow jelly roll from Mad About Patchwork before he was born and took out the girly colours (to save for a baby girl some day) and plan on making a cute and cuddly quilt for him.
