Last night I wanted to do some sewing so I pulled out one of my many UFO's and got to it. I thought the blocks for this quilt were maybe from 2013. You can imagine my surprise (shock) when after a bit of research I found they were really made in early 2011. Can that be? Yes. I was reading Aneela Hoey's blog one day back in April of 2011 and saw her making this . I enjoyed making the blocks because it's really a free and easy block, just put your fabrics together as you please. I did organize my blocks into colors and use the cupcake as the common denominator. When I saw the striped fabric I had begun to use as the sashing, it almost came out, but last night I went with it and in the light of day I think it worked well.
That wide strip of navy may have been used differently, but it's fine.
I even like my brown/tan/yellow blocks.
So I'm four years late finishing the top, but it's progress and that's a good thing.
Our next round of funky weather is due to begin in a few hours. I'll be keeping myself busy making the border for the Knitter's Gifts quilt, which is made up of mini drunkard's path blocks.
God Bless You.
