It’s been too long since I posted, but I have been sewing, even if I haven’t been sharing it here. I’ve started on a little wall of quilts in my dining room, opposite my herringbone stenciled wall.
The Wine/Whiskey quilt was made using the My First Alphabet and My First Alphabet: Numbers and Punctuation foundation paper piecing patterns by From Blank Pages on Etsy. I accented it with leftovers from the American Made Brand License Plate Tour, so that it reminds me of how nice it felt to be asked to participate. (And aren’t those colors gorgeous? LOVE them!)
My husband doesn’t listen to country music, so even though he loves Blake Shelton from The Voice, he doesn’t hear the song in his head when he reads the quilt. He does know why I chose it for us, though. :)
Oh, those S’s are HARD! I’m only really pleased with one of them, but I let them ride. I’ve learned that over time, the imperfections in a quilt kind of become endearing to the creator. It’s weird, but mostly true. It’s what you’ll look for, part of how you know it’s yours. It’s good to learn to forgive yourself and move on.
The hashtag quilt was a very simple pattern I found in Fons & Porter’s Scrap Quilts magazine Spring 2014 issue. You can make the top from just a charm pack of solids and less than two yards of white fabric. I think this would make a great baby quilt, boy or girl.
I have a third little quilt made, but it won’t be hung up until I have a couple more done, just for proper placement. For now I’ll just enjoy these, and the process of making the ones to come!
