This picture was taken last week, when the snow had melted. I love Jenny Doan's tutorials from the Missouri Star Quilt Company so I started looking through them for the perfect way to use a layer cake. The Four-Patch Stars was just what I was looking for HERE. I had purchased the 10" squares of Petite Prints by French General with some yardage from Darlene at A Needle Pulling Thread. The fabric has been hiding since last spring so it was time for it to see the light of day. The colours are very muted, almost vintage, and the reds, browns, and creams were just what I needed for a "gentle" quilt. It is a pretty large quilt for me, finishing at 76" x 92" so this one will be travelling to Sydney to be quilted by Ange of Quilting on the Mira.
The hardest part for me when making this top was to choose the inner border. I looked at three choices and went with the last. When you are shopping from your stash, sometimes you just have to go with it!
Before I go I want to tell you about my latest
It is called the Truecut Rotary Cutter and you can even personalise the handle!
I do love my gadgets! If you are looking for a Nova Scotia source for the Truecut Rotary Cutter, I was talking to Beth at Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium in Amherst, NS and she has an order coming in so give her a call if you're interested!
And that's it. Time to go sew! It's a great day for quilting!
