I'm flunking the WIP Wednesday, enough political ads already! Here's what is happening in my corner of the world.This is the broken dishes quilt in the Prairie Children and Their Quilts book that I showed last Thursday.
And here is my freshly completed top minus borders. They will be auditioned this afternoon. It seemed like alot of cutting, the need for 48 of the scrappy HST's....but I stuck to it and even made extra. I'm quite pleased with how it looks and the fabrics I chose. Some of the scraps I used are from the 1980's and a reproduction line of Museum prints from that era.
And since I'm lucky enough to have found this Orphan block of broken dishes, and quilted it up as a square, I had a good reference of how scrappy this project could actually be and look authentic. What do you think? Do you like what I did?
I'm going to get the borders on, and then hand quilt it. I think a simple cross hatching through the centers, diagonally. I enjoyed it so much, I've selected the Bear Paw as my next little quilt from that book...the colors are richer...hurray for that!!!
