With three upcoming births in our family....I've been busy creating quilts.Not having a specific theme or color suggestion for this one, a small stack of polka dot prints from my stash caught my eye. My first thought was to limit the colors and make pink and blue 4 patch blocks. (The baby will be a girl.) After realizing my prints wouldn't stretch that far I changed course. Instead, I began piecing single 3" patches of every color in my collection.
Naturally, then I realized there really weren't enough to finish AND not enough to provide a pleasing distribution of color and pattern.
I always appreciate belonging to several small fiber groups in the area. Luckily, our PTA (group of 14) was scheduled to meet.....so with the stroke of a few computer keys.....my pals generously brought some from their stashes to share with me.
My goal was to make a manageable size quilt.....so I had intended to stop at this point. However, it did seem a bit puny and I felt it needed a border to frame all that activity.......
How lucky I am to have the time and studio space to do all these tasks......while watching/listening (often open mouth) some trashy reality shows!!
