Stars Over Mitford


Just finished this top, using 5" squares from a recent swap.  The pattern and construction method  are from Pat Speth's second book, More Nickel Quilts, which I highly recommend.

This is exactly the style of quilt I like to work on the most -- pieced, scrappy, vintage-style fabrics.

RSC17: February - aqua


It's been in a very non-productive couple of weeks.  We were 'down the hill' for a while, doing grandparenty stuff, and then as soon as we got home I came down with a streaming hacking cold: very little progress to share with aqua/teal scrapbusting.  Most of my teal scraps are 1800s repros, so these pieces are soft and quiet rather than bright.

 

I did get the blocks for this month's 30s baby quilt pieced -- they're brighter aqua.

En Provence


Today is the final link-up for
Bonnie Hunter's En Provence 2017 Mystery Sew-Along.

I still have a ways to go, but mine is coming along satisfactorily.  It's so easy to get one (or several) of the sub-units turned the wrong way while assembling a row -- I have to be in the mood for slow careful concentration. 

I'm very pleased with the color substitutions I chose, and it's looking "tulip-y" to me :)  I'm aiming to have the top, including whatever borders I decide to add, completed by April ... so I can hang it over the upper stair railing for the Easter season.
