I have a soft spot for fabric lines. I don’t have to make the effort to co-ordinate colours and patterns. This was one of those lines I couldn’t resist. I bought a layer cake, a charm pack, and a couple yards. I separated them into blues and purples. (Of course I want the latter for myself …) I’ve wanted to do a sampler sort of lap quilt for some time using pinwheels. I made them using the 5×5″ charms and bordered them with strips from the layer cake fabric. Throw in a few modified nine patches and a couple log cabins and voila! Very pretty. I titled it “Song of Solomon 2:12” chosen for the flowered fabric and flower quilting. It gave me a chuckle, people grabbed a bible to look up the verse and then asked, where are the turtledoves?!
This one I donated to our church’s annual bazaar. It sold. A congregation member purchased it as a baptism gift for her new grand-daughter.
Song of Solomon 2:12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
I finished the Rainbow Log Cabin top. Pictures coming soon. I started to organize the left over scraps and in doing so, decided to throw together another project that has been on the bottom of my list for some time. I wanted to use up extra blocks I had from my very first quilt , scraps from the Ordinary Time banners and the Ordination Stole, strips and blocks from the Trip Around the World, and odds and sods from NM’s Snowball quilt. I began Friday and finished up the blocks Saturday night, almost …
I had no other plans for the fabric and wanted to get it out of my stash. So this is what I ended up with, a Crazy Sampler quilt. Since there was no plan or pattern, it sewed up really quick.
Once I laid out all the blocks I came to the realization that I will have to make one more block. I’m greatly pleased with the way that this one turned out, to the extent that I am keeping it for a less randomly constructed Sampler. What is one more project? Really.
