I have spent most of the week making a block or two a day for the MSBHQAL so I didn't feel there was anything post worthy. Out of 30 blocks I have 25 done, 5 to go. But I was also able to get a couple of other things done as well.
I thought I would start with smaller and work my way up, size-wise through the 12 quilts that need quilting. This is the smallest one. The small version of the Briar Rose quilt that I made from scraps.
I found a small piece of starry Christmas fabric leftover from something years ago. Bound with some leftover Sunkissed swirly print.
This one has long been a fave. I pieced this one about 5 or 6 years ago when I had an idea to turn my quilting into some sort of a business. I was going to try making baby quilts from my scraps (of which there are tons). I made 4 different quilt tops before I decided that was too much work and it wasn't what I wanted to do.
It hung in the closet all these years. Two of the others have long been quilted and donated to charity and the third I quilted and kept. I couldn't bear to part with it in the end.
I found a big hunk of blue in my stash for the back and the binding stripe is a Quilter's Candy from Connecting Threads. Quilted in swirly curlycues.
I love how it turned out. It's about 42 inches almost square. Not sure yet where it will end up. So that's 2 down, 10 to go. Yay me!! Have a great week. See you soon.
