Hi all, and welcome to the last day of March! We're already having some April showers, so flowers and green grass can't be too far behind. It was raining against the windows on Sunday and I couldn't identify the sound. I thought it might be an animal scratching at the window, but no--just unfrozen water falling from the sky. It's been a long time!
In the sewing room so far this week, I've been playing with the sawtooth stars that have crumb centers. I've been trying to figure out what I'm going to do with them now that I've made three of them. A plain sawtooth star quilt doesn't really appeal to me, so I came up with this:
This could work!
The frame around the sawtooth star block is adapted from the Moda Love pattern, available HERE in 3 sizes (pdf). Using this pattern as a frame is not a completely original idea. There is a group at my local quilt shop doing something very similar, but I am using smaller pieces so it fits my block. (I also used this pattern before to make something completely different. See HERE.)
Here is the yellow block:
These blocks are 24 by 24 each. I don't know if I'll use any sashing or anything yet, but this is a great size to make up a nice-sized lap quilt. And I like that they're different and not the same old thing. I think it's going to look good!
I still have to make the frame for the blue block. I didn't have a blue that I liked with the block, so I'll have to go get something in medium blue. What a hardship, I know.
Short post, but I hope you have a great, creative sewing week. Since this is Holy Week for western Christians, we have a few days off later in the week. I think we may try to work outside for the first time this year. Just cleanup, but it's something!
