Winter Blues

This little quilt is making an appearance over at Sew, Mama, Sew! today as part of a feature on the Modern Block of the Month series that has just wrapped up. After making the July block last year as per the instructions I decided (without having any real idea what I was doing) to do a more improv version by
cutting without a ruler.

32" x 38"
When I finished, in keeping with my feeling that I wanted as much colour as possible, I quilted it in close straight-ish lines with variegated thread.

I even did a pieced back - not my norm because I tend to be getting impatient to get finished when I get to the backing/quilting stage!

It was the most fun I have had making a quilt, but when it was finished I lost my nerve a bit and thought 'waaaaaaaay too much'. It has been in the cupboard for a while but I think I'm going to hang it up over the winter months, it's so cheery on grey days!


  1. I love the colours in this one! I am tempted to try a solids one next.

  2. oh it's very fun!! congrats on the feature!

  3. Hang it up! Show it off and enjoy your handiwork. It's beautiful!

  4. This is gorgeous! Don't hide it in a cupboard - it's stunning! Definitely brighten up a winter's day. No wonder it was picked to feature on Sew Mama Sew. Well done!
