Tomorrow, March 16, is National Quilting Day! What will you be sewing on?
I am working on “Liz’s Quilt” which was published in the January/February issue of Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine. This quilt of mini Nine Patches and Ohio Stars caught my eye as I thumbed through the magazine. I love the scrappiness; I love the sparkling bits of color that dance across the quilt. I’m using 1 1/2″ squares from my extensive collection for the mini Nine Patches. The 4 yds. of background shirting and the 1 1/2 yds. of blue micro print is from stash. Could this qualify as a “free quilt?”
Several quilting friends are joining me in an ad hoc quilt along for this quilt. Want to join us? We are encouraging each other as we put our scraps to good use in this gorgeous quilt. As published, “Liz’s Quilt” utilizes various colors for the Ohio Stars, but I’m modifying the design by using one print fabric.
