Last night I finished up this little beauty….
It is from Lori Smith’s Fat Quarter Quilting: Throughout the Year. I started it last year but got frustrated in the process and set it aside. My frustration was not due to the pattern or the instructions. I got the basket blocks sewn together and realized I had two triangles inverted…not on just one block, but on all five blocks. I packaged it all up and set it aside. I am not very good at ripping things out and fixing them.
A couple night ago, I remembered the project and dug it out thinking it would be nice to finish for spring. The quilt was made to hang out by our front door, so I didn’t take the time to hand applique the rabbits and flowers. A little heat and bond along with button stitch applique is perfect for an outside quilt that will only last a couple seasons. There are several other quilts in the pattern that I would like to make as well….maybe the 4th of July design will be next…Hopefully it won’t take a year to finish.
