When the right shade of pink isn't in the basket, guess that's a good reason for a run to the fabric store! ! ! There are some very pretty shades of pink in your basket, though. I know what you mean by how much a block shrinks as you sew the 1/4 inch seams. It is always hard for me to judge the block size until it is all together. Just two seams within a block can shrink it an inch! ! ! Amazing! I like the picture at the end of your blog today, pretty colors and great pattern.Marsha
Just keep diggin'; the right pink surely must be there! Isn't it true that the more seams in the block, the more it shrinks? I too love the last little quilt; I love anything in pink! ---"Love"
Boy I would have loved to dive into your bin of pinks today! I'm working on a new dolly quilt and my stash of leftover pinks is dwindling fast. Your little blocks look sweet - what are you using them for? Your picture is just a tease...
There's a very sweet quilt peeking out there and I can see some teeny tiny triangles. I guess when you make quilts out of vintage fabrics you can't just pop out to the store for what you need. Happy Stitching, Ann :-)
I'm with Katie- we're coming to raid your stash!! :) Your little sneak peak of the quilt looks very pretty- can't wait to see it :) Christine
Hi! welcome to blogland! I was happy to find your blog.Looking forward to seeing many of your quilts in progress and finished of course!Love those pinks!!!Kathie
Blocks do shrink, and when you work on such a small scale as you do it's very noticeable. I don't have the patience to do much on that scale. I prefer to just admire yours :)Is that a sneak peak of a current project in the corner? -Joanne
Yes, that is a sneak peak. I will be sibmitting that one to quilt magazines in the future for possible publication--so that's all you get to see for now :)
I got a giggle out of this post;) My house explodes fabric when I get into a creative bend...lol...at least the hubby doesn't mind. And the chemistry thing...too much;)Happy Quilting!!!
