Good evening, everyone. I am working on the first clue for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, "Frolic." Four patches!!! LOTS of them, LOL!!
So here is my cutting board on the kitchen counter, and I am cutting four patch segments....
and the tail end of the strips got strung across the oven handle! LOL!!! It was such a long piece to cut from, and kept falling off the counter...so I improvised, using the oven to hold the strip.
Lori, of Humble quilts, had a challenge...she wanted each person to take an old piece or block, and use it in a quilt....so I dug these hand pieced blocks out of the giveaway pile for guild...and took a look.
See how the block just disappears into the very busy background?
I carefully took one of the blocks apart, and was going to applique it to the background. But I anticipate these fabrics being 80+ years old, and they were frayed and fragile....so what if I put rick-rack around the edges? Sure makes it look a bit more modern, doesn't it?
Just playing here...and thinking of the lady who took all those careful hand stitches, to put together these blocks. I salute her!!
