While rummaging through old projects, leftover blocks etc. I came across these blocks used in an applique workshop I used to teach. I had made a quilt to use as a sample which eventually sold and I thought, why not use these blocks to make another. I don't like making the same thing twice but this was just too convenient and ready to use. I needed another large quilt for my booth at Woolworth Walk, so this would be perfect.
cut it out, stood back for a look-see and yes, this would work. But it might look odd to have one odd little circle in the middle of a quilt...People might get suspicious...People might be doing the same thing with their mishaps...People might.........People might.......(holding breath)......so I took the advice of the late and very great Roberta Horton who always said, when you make a mistake, repeat it 2 more times. That way it will look intentional...best advice I've ever gotten. So you know the rest.
And no...I didn't cover the quilt with circles but I did use enough to make it look intentional...all I can say is Whew! and Thank You Roberta!
Next step is to quilt this and get it to Woolworth...Have a great dayt!

I’m so late catching up on blog reading after enjoying some family time…….but gotta say…what a brillliant solution for the treasures you had squirreled away and to come up with a beautiful eye-catching larger quilt for our railing display at Woolworth Walk Gallery.ReplyDelete
