So, I have finished 6 (out of 12) blocks in Erica Kaprow’s Summertime Sampler. When I started, I was just going to do the teapot, but it was so much fun, I continued. I’m still not sure if I’ll do all of them, but I figure, as long as I still have hand dyed wools, I should keep going.
This quilt is made with all African or African-themed fabrics. I’ve been collecting these fabrics for years and got inspired by some new ones I found at a stash sale last month The pattern is ‘Carousel lap quilt’ from Kim Schaefer’s “Cozy Modern Quilts”.
Tonight I finished the last border on my Patchwork Cottage quilt. Now on to the quilting. I plan to hand quilt it, probably over the winter.
Last month I organized a group quilt from our hiking group (affectionately called the Hiking Aunties) for the expected grandson of one of our hikers. The pattern was “Log Cabin Polka” from the book “Follow the Dots to Dazzling Quilts”. We presented it to Erica on August 16 at a baby shower for her.
Here is my completed jacket. Pattern is “Noelle’s Jacket” by Rag Merchant. For the fabric I used fat quarters from the Moda line Kashmir III.
All the interest in my Patchwork Cottage post from October 2013 has propelled me to work on it again. I do tend to go from project to project and sometimes they get forgotten along the way. Anyhow, here’s my current progress report:
Finished this little quilt May 31, 2016 and forgot to post it. I started it in a class with Sandra Bruce in March of last year. She calls her technique “Material Matrix” and the pattern “Wake Up Cup”. It was fun to see it go togehter. (It looks better if you squint).
