Small Quilt = Fewer Pieces...NOT!!!
First of all...I am not complaining...I used to be addicted to mini quilts. Actually had 2 patterns published in Miniature Quilt Magazine when it was still being published. With that said...I forgot that small/mini did not mean easy or fewer pieces, lol. I am loving the group challenge organized by Huckleberry Stitches.
This month's quilt is Hourglass...consisting of 135 squares!!! And the hardest part...picking out the fabrics you want to use. I do believe scrappy quilts are harder to put together because you are choosing one fabric at a time...give me a kit with the fabrics all chosen anytime...I LOVE being a quilt kit customer, LOL.
I did get my blocks all done...lets see if I can get it all pieced and quilted before the end of the month??? Anyone feel like betting? LOL
I also am working on a couple of pincushions. I need to do the wool stitching on the tops. As for the backs...well, I absolutely love the backing fabric. I purchased it at Material Girl in Redmond, Oregon.
