This was a reject block when I was making my Gypsy Wife quilt. Those are 70s fabrics but I'm not sticking to time periods this time--just striving for the right colors. The squiggles worked really well and the corner blocks were made from two of the fabrics that were in the bundle that I purchased at GSQ last month :)
On another note . . .
The bathroom is done!
The new light fixtures which were actually advertised 'facing down' are now facing up per the electrician's recommendation. Good idea!
The "Playtime" picture was from a good friend of mine many years ago and set the color scheme of red, blue and yellow.
My cousin made this mug for me when I was 8 years old.
I have a hard time leaving spaces empty especially when I can fill them with vintage goodies, lol! So I put a few of my colorful little quilts on a rack and added needle books to the ledge above the drawers. Then I bought two rag rugs on Amazon.
Next I'll be working on the hallway--mostly painting :)
This is our guild's BOM for February called 'Nine to Five'. Four 5" squares--2 red and 2 white--are sewed together. After a series of cuts and turns you end up with this block where the reds and whites alternate. It's an interesting technique but now I know why I never used that white/red print before. It's definitely off-grain!
Are you looking for another project--what???
Check out Barbara B's latest free BOM series on her Civil War Quilts blog here. The Antebellum Album blocks are based on ones found in early friendship quilts and there are examples from two NJ quilts in today's post. In fact, one is the quilt on the cover of our book, New Jersey Quilts.
I'm in--are you?
