I finished up my small Midwinter Blues quilt this week. I love Lori’s quilt alongs and this one has been great fun. The instructions for each step are still up and you can find step one here. I really love how this little quilt turned out. I made my blocks a bit bigger than hers and my quilt finishes at about 27 inches square. I am thinking about making a bigger quilt with these same blocks.
Last night I pulled out these little 4″ log cabin blocks that I made about a year ago.
I made a few more while hubby was on a phone meeting. I don’t love making these but I love them when they are done. Maybe because it makes such a mess.
Maybe because they are a bit fiddly. Maybe they take so long because I am OCD about cutting threads and cleaning everything up after every paper pieced seam. At any rate, I am up to 25 blocks now. My next goal is to get to 36. Hope I can do that before losing interest and putting it away for another year!
Today, Daughter #1 is coming over to sew. Yay!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13 NABRE)
