Going through my old photos recently I found a couple of quilts that I had not shared on the blog… some of them I was happy to let go but there were a few that I wanted to share… the foxes was one and this is another…
I started these blocks a year or so ago, after I managed to give myself a nice little concussion… the blocks were easy and used up quite a bit of my 2 1/2 inch charm square stash. I used a free pattern I found at the Fat Quarter Shop called Sister’s Choice…and it was the perfect project for my addled brain.
I did not have to cut up too much fabric… just the sashing as I used all my precut scraps to make the blocks. nI was not going to sash the blocks originally but I like how the white gives the quilt breathing room. It really works… and I must admit I have sashed some more quilts since this.
The best part of the process was putting together color combinations…
I struggled a little towards the end to find different color combinations and relied heavily on some neutrals to round things out… grey became my good friend with this project.
I finished the top up and then one of our wonderful charity long armers quilted and bound the quilt for me. I do not usually get this much help on my charity quilts but it was perfectly timed, as I was still struggling with post concussion issues. I love the wave pattern they chose…it is simple but adds great movement to the quilt.
This quilt went to the PICU over 6 months ago so it’s new owner should have warn it in well by now.
