I didn’t get any sewing done this weekend. Attending ArtPrize and entertaining company from Pittsburgh kept me too busy. However, I did want to show you this block above. I saw a quilt that I liked while on the Bus Tour last February. Unfortunately, I did not get the name of the pattern. What I remembered were big flowers on a large scrappy background. I love appliqué and decided I could create this design myself. My block is 14” square. I like how it turned out and hope to get some more blocks made soon. I think three of these blocks in a row would make a nice wall hanging on a narrow wall in my hall. Or add a few more blocks and it would be a nice bed runner. I’d still like to make several blocks, maybe nine in all, and make a nice size wall hanging. I’ll keep you posted.
ON ANOTHER NOTE: City House Studio has a tutorial for a scrappy sticks block. This would be a great way to use up those narrow pieces of fabric that you don’t know what to do with and don’t have the heart to throw away.
Until next time, ♥ Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive! Caroll
