So this has happened...
the St. Louis 16 patch quilt. After spying Katy's version on her blog recently I immediately fell in love and had major quilt envy, so I had to join the impromtu quilt-along and get going! The blocks are really quite big so I thought it would work great with the larger scale Pam Kitty Love fabrics I had in my stash. I also needed an excuse to cut into the fabulous new fabrics from the Happy Go Lucky collection, ahh I just love those scallop stripes! They all play so well together :)
I'm really excited about this quilt, it's the most fun I've had quilting since the scrappy trip along - you know, when you think about sewing up those next blocks as soon as you wake up!! or is that just me? Or you stay up until the wee hours cutting and sewing (like I did last night). You can find the pattern for the 16 patch quilt here.I started on the St Louis 16 patch last night as I finished basting my flying geese quilt, and I didn't have any grey thread for quilting; thankfully I picked some up today from my LQS and currently it's hanging over my landing staircase waiting to be quilted.
So lots of projects in the works for me! I hope you're all working on something fun this week too? xo
