When I first started blogging, I won a Go! Baby Accuquilt starter set which included the Go! Baby Value Die. A long time ago, I used the die to cut up the remaining scraps from a FQ bundle, sewed together a bunch of HSTs, and then put everything away for another day. Fast forward a few years and this project was calling my name from its hiding place. I really didn't have much of a plan so I started using the HSTs to make some scrappy stars.
What I did know is that I wanted to make a small project that I could quilt myself. I decided to stop when I had the nine stars made and found a luscious piece of the Dowager Duchess line of Downton Abbey fabric that I had in my stash to border it.
I finished binding the quilt on Wednesday when I was working at the Artisans Collective Gift Shop at the Port Hastings Museum at the entrance to Cape Breton. I found a place in the shop to put the quilt and took a picture.
Ten minutes later someone walked in and brought it to my desk for purchase, and yes, I was thrilled that someone liked it enough to part with some of their cash!
I had attached a small label to the back, used a yellow toile fabric to keep with the gentleness of the quilt, and machine quilted it in my old faithful loop de loop pattern.
Last week's post about my quest for a pattern for another school house block resulted in some wonderful ideas. I want to thank you all for giving me some places to go to find a new pattern. I hope to use your ideas and eventually build a new neighbourhood with blue and cream houses!
It's a great day for quilting!
