There are 729 one inch squares, so it is only 27 inches by 27 inches. I have to decide whether to leave it as a very small quilt, or keep going and make 8 more blocks like this, which would make a large (and very heavy) quilt 81 inches by 81 inches, and contain 6,561 pieces!!
This is my travelling quilt, I work on it in the car (when I am a passenger) or when travelling in the train to work with my friend Cecily.
I have also been working on a quilt that I hope to finish in time for the Springwood Quilt Show in April. This is the first largeish applique quilt that I have made. I commenced the applique and piecing in the second week in January and I am now hand quilting it. I used two patterns from
and one block that I designed myself, after looking at tulip blocks in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Applique.
Well I hope to be a more regular blogger from now on.
