The Blocks
The blocks for this project finish 4"
Use your scraps to make 4 blocks each week. 
I will be using the historical colors featured in the quilt.
I will be using Kona Natural for my background.
This is a 11 week program and will begin in June.
The majority of the block instructions will be in 
 C and T Publishing's Quick and Easy Block Tool. 
Finishing instructions will be given once all
 the blocks have been completed.
You will need 1-1/2 yards for setting, borders and binding.
We will not have kits for the blocks. 
We will be digging into our scraps and using a
 variety of blues, browns, reds, grays and pinks.

Setting fabric will be available while supplies last.

Living With Little Quilts

Laundry can be fun!
My laundry room features a wall of small quilts
that I have made over the year. Most of them have been 
made using an antique doll quilt as inspiration. 
A lot of them are featured in this book.
The quilt in the top left corner is a favorite. 
You can find the pattern in our 
See the little quilt folded on the top of the basket?
That is my mothers doll quilt and has here named
embroidered on the back - so special.
I use little tiny nails to attach yardsticks to wall. Leave the 
heads sticking out so you can hook the nail into
 the binding between the stitches.
