Yep you heard that right… the pinkies are back after an extended vacation…
We made the most of the brief bout of sunny weather here in the Pacific Northwest and took some finished quilt photos over the summer. I actually wanted to take all the quilts I had to photograph (about 12) to Hawaii with us on holiday but Mr Wombat did not like that idea. So instead we stayed local.
I choose this as the first quilt to share with you after such a long break because I LOVE it. It is so bright and fun. It was made a one of our Portland Modern Quilt Guild charity sew days from my large stash of 3 1/2 inch solid squares.
I process all the small scraps I make and am given into 3 1/2 or 5 inch squares using my trusty Accquilt cutter. It has made charity sew days so much easier for me having the Go Cutter to work with… I have spent many a happy evening cutting bits of fabric while watching trashy tv….somehow I am less guilty watching bad TV if I am doing something constructive while doing it.
The blocks are 12 inch finished blocks and use a 4 x 4 grid or 3 1/2 inch squares. They are so easy to make and even though there were at least 12 people making these blocks I had no trouble matching seams.
This was truly a team effort with PMQG members sewing the blocks, quilting the quilt and binding this beauty up…. and finally Mr Wombat helping with the photography and supplying the quilt feet and of course…
The pinkies…. this was the last quilt we photographed and by the time we found this great yellow wall he was pretty close to divorcing me… but all has been forgiven now.
