'Aves' Quilt Block of the Week program.
On Saturday night I sat down and had a chat with my stash.
The outer edges are untrimmed, but I'm happy with how it turned out! The journey has begun!
Sarah Fielke and finishes 15" square when made like this with out the borders that she suggests.
I still can't decide whether or not I should have quilted the star - but I was happy with the close background quilting!
This is made with foundation paper piecing. Enough to get me 'into the zone' for the Aves block above, and enough to remind me that I probably don't really want to make a New York Beauty quilt, lovely though I think they look. I had been wondering about that as a project....
Instead of a New York Beauty I've decided to get back into my scrap drawers. This is a pile of 5" squares. I'm planning to split them into lights and darks (more or less), sew them in HST pairs and then to play with them to find a fun layout. Simple sewing for undemanding fun!
