17 x 21 inches
Just to add some Christmas cheer to my blog, here's an "oldie but a goodie" that I've put up every year since I made it. This was made sometime between 1986 and 1990. (Bad quilter - didn't put on a label) It definitely has '80's fabrics in there! I was inspired to make this by a sample in the window of my favorite quilt shop at that time "Going to Pieces" in Pleasanton, California. I just fell in love with that little quilt, so I went home and copied it from memory. No pattern. And I made mitered corners on those spools! And hand-quilted. I still love it!
Here is the first half of the flying geese I need to make for the mystery quilt I'm working on. I couldn't even get them all in the photo! And sorry for the crummy picture - it doesn't work too well to take pix at night. I need to make this many again, only in different colors. I'm not sure how big these units are, but over on the left there are 2 of my Block Lotto blocks for this month and they are 7 inch blocks.
Here are some more mystery quilt units that I've been working on. It's hard to tell from the photo, but that is a rusty red and a black-ish brown. This quilt will be autumn colors. Nothing is hard sewing, but there is lots and lots of pieces and units.
I bought the Paperweights pattern from Karen Griska (of the Selvage Blog) on her Etsy store. I'm making a little test sample quiltlet to see how well the fusible I'm using will work. I think this will be cute!
Good luck with your last-minute holiday preparations! I hope you get a few minutes to do some sewing or quilting. I'm going to go sew with friends this afternoon!
