Today’s designs look rather old fashioned, but they also look warm and comfortable.
The blocks are from the Electric Quilt block library, but with some modifications.
I am sometimes surprised that I have spent so much time making quilts that I like the look of to put on a bed, and then we spend most of the time in the bedroom in the dark with eyes closed. However, I love seeing a crumpled quilt on a bed which has kept somebody warm and comfortable overnight, and enjoy making the bed a lot more if there is a real quilt on top when it is done!
The first design is my favourite for today … mainly because I can’t pick my favourite of the last two.
This is just a recolouring of the Irish 9P project file … the old colours were pretty dull!
Nothing like a bit of green to freshen things up.
Love the second design!
The blocks are simply Nine Patch, nine squares, usually four light and five dark,which form a Single Irish Chain with alternate plain blocks. However, I have placed the dark fabrics in different places in most blocks, and used more or less of the dark than the usual five squares. If you sort your scraps from light to dark, put those in the middle back into the scrap basket, you could use scraps.
I have saved the original project with a slight variation of the title, and deleted the designs I have already shared rather than repeat the designs with new colours. As there were over 50 designs left to go, I thought it was worthwhile to clear the deck, and will add some quilting to both leftovers from the original project file as well as new designs. It looks a bit like rain outside this morning, so maybe there will be time to play in EQ today instead of in the garden.
Looks a bit like the green stuff in my garden at the moment, as we have had some heavy rain and thunderstorms over the last couple of days, and all the dirt and dust has been washed off the green bits.
The flowers are also nice and clean … pity rain doesn’t work like the inside the house!
