I finished my Go Four It quilt on Thursday. I am sooooo pleased with it. We had a light dusting of snow. I took it outside for a photo. The sun was not shining so the splendor of the bright blocks don't show as well, but it is beautiful.
I took the challenge that Joy suggested called Table Scraps. I made this little table topper. I just LOVE it!!! It makes me happy just to walk past it. It makes me happy to have a sweet little finish. I think about several of my bloggy friends as I walk by and am thankful for all of them! Come see all the fun table toppers on Joy's blog today, The Joyful Quilter, here.
I had a bunch of pink squares and strips left over from my Winter Blues (in pink) quilt. I just happened to get my e-mail from Sew Can She with this cute heart pattern called Baby Heart Log Cabin Quilt. I used 1.5" squares instead of the suggested size. It turned out super cute. You can find the pattern here. Such a great idea to make something out of the little scraps left out after another project, Joy!
It measures 18" square. I quilted it with one of my block templates that had heart motifs in the center and then put a border around it and some squiggles. It was good to practice some of the things I haven't done for a while on the longarm.
I'm almost embarrassed to show this, but this is real life... Here's the before picture.
Cathy that blogs at Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting inspired me in (as she always does) to use up those scraps. Check out her gorgeous rail fence quilt here. She made 900 blocks here and there over a few years and ended up with a gorgeous quilt.
I loved the idea of using up 1.5" strips of the color of the month for the RSC and started making them in 2021. Here's the first 14 of 900...
You can get the GO! ABC pattern on the Accuquilt site here.
