Remember last week when I was inspired by Katy’s Dresden blocks?
I decided to make one of my own.
And I decided to use Cath Kidston as my muse and make it bright and scrappy.
I used all pieces from my scraps/stash. And they’re all favorites.
I finished last night while watching the final episode of Emma.
It’s kind of huge.
I was originally intending to use this as a pillow but it’s about 18″ big.
Maybe I’ll frame it. Maybe I’ll put some borders on it and make it into a doll quilt. Maybe I should make three more and make it into a wall hanging. That’s actually sounding appealing to me. I’ll surprise you. Suggestions are welcome.
And then there’s this. This is my first block from this quilt.
I LOVE it. I’m excited to try some funkier versions. But this is a happy start.
(It was a fun British weekend here. When I wasn’t running kids late to birthday parties, or celebrating my Dad’s and my Grandma’s birthdays while people were simultaneously watching the Super Bowl, or on the phone with Poison Control because we weren’t sure how much toilet bowl cleaner my poor 5-year-old splashed into his eye. Life is not dull.)
