When you left me yesterday, Lisa had come home feeling poorly.
After TCL, and cat cuddles . . .
(two dozen patchwork quilts in the house and I photograph her with a shop bought knitted blanket, sigh!)
. . . she was up stripping wallpaper in the kitchen
These blocks started off as a 'will this work?' project with a few blocks
Then went into mass production with 2.5" pink or turquoise strips being sandwiched with black,
Then being cross cut into 2.5 wide three patch blocks (and added to 2.5" x 6.5" pink, and turquoise strips)
And finally being speed dated into a woven pattern . . .
. . . which will hopefully look better once it is stitched. There are enough blocks to make another one too, but it would have been much easier to use one pink and one turquoise fabric - not three of each!. The second one will also be woven but the fabric will vary along the 'ribbons': switching between batik, dotty and plain.
I've got a good idea where these quilts are going too (no, NOT on the UFO pile) but I'll tell you about that tomorrow
