Here's a pic that only we can appreciate, I realize. How many times do you look at your trimmings and think, 'gosh they're so pretty! I know! So this one's for us.
Over the summer I had a little secret sewing project and now I can finally reveal it! Windham Fabrics is reissuing Heather Ross' gorgeous line Mendocino next spring, and they sent some over my way to play with. I made a quilt!
A simple quilt, made of 20 nine-patch blocks with sashing. Instead of white, I used Windham 1930's Ivory solid for the sashing and I love how warm it looks. (The nine-patches are made of half-square triangles, and each HST unit measures 3".)
Basically this quilt is a study in color. And it's a cozy 43" x 53" ~ so the perfect lap quilt. If I were to do it again, I would make the HST units larger, maybe 5" each, in order to see more of Heather's fun prints and make the quilt larger. But I love this little cutie. Gotta love Mendocino ~ look for it in shops March 2016!
p.s. Make sure and come by tomorrow for a fun sneak peek at my new fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics: Paperie!
