I'm still loving the idea that Sharon at Vroomans Quilts came up with, pick a book, pattern or magazine, blow off the dust and make a quilt. Since I have stacks of magazines all opened to a specific quilt this idea is perfect for me, plus I'm using some older stash fabrics when possible, win win.
This month I picked this magazine
And this quilt
The quilt was built around that center block, but I changed that so it would match the border fabric I wanted to use, which I've had way too long.
I pulled all of the colors from the border fabric too, so it's nice and bright. I like that the daisies overlap the blocks, it adds a little depth to the quilt, plus I like unrestrained daisies :)
The quilt finished at 41" square and other than changing the main block I followed the directions (first time ever).
I used just about the last of that smiling daisy fabric that I've been trying to use up for years as the backing, it matched perfectly and I only have about a fat quarter left.
You'll see this magazine again, it has a cute Halloween wall hanging I'd like to make and at least one quilt block that I want to play with.
Once again, Thank You Sharon! This is the incentive I needed to clean out that pile of magazines, most of which only have one quilt I want to make. It will take me years, but I'm already planning what I can put on that shelf, LOL.
Please think about joining in, it's a great way to go though all of those books, patterns and magazines we've all been
hoarding collecting and please check out the linky party for lots of inspiration.
