That's what I'm calling this quilt. Kathie gave me the real name from the book showing the actual designer and maker, and always wanting to give credit to the actual maker...I'm keeping the name.
I started cutting pieces for this quilt anytime I pull out an interesting fabric to use for a diary block. I stick them in a nice plastic shoe box and then whenever the mood hits I grab a few and sew them up. These are so fun to make and very easy to do with no paper piecing. I did go buy the Fons and Porter corner nippers and with those lining up the edges is a breeze!
I also left the picture a bit large so I could give you a peek at the dresdens on the design board...recognize those? Libby posted 4 of them and I fell in love with the size..never having seen ones with 18 plates before. SO out came the handy protractor and I drew up a template. 2 more to make and I'll have a handy wall hanging all from scrap. It's so fun to get all inspired by (uh,...copy from) someone. Sorry Libby! I'm actually planning 2 of them...another made from 30's prints for spring!
