Hello Sweet Friends!
I was so excited to make my first quilt block for Donna's quilt sampler quilt along over at her beautiful blog, Donna's Lavender Nest! It felt good to do some patchwork and sewing again! I decided for all the blocks that I am going to use the pretty prints from Sidewalks that I recently received from Donna's fabric shoppe, which you can find here! There is still time to join in this quilty sweetness!
And, since I was already sewing away I thought I would work on some 16-patch quilt blocks. I have about 3 more rows to go for this quilt and then it will be time to put these pretty blocks together!
In the November 1950 issue of The Workbasket magazine, there was this quilt pattern, Star of Bethlehem, that I thought was so beautiful and would love to try one day! It looks a little hard and I am thinking probably hand piecing would be the best with these shapes. I just love how it says to cut the pattern pieces out on cardboard. Such a great idea.
Green, pink, light yellow and white were the most popular colors this quilt was made with, which I think are lovely colors together. I am even think this would be a pretty pillow cover, too! Have you seen this quilt before?
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on the Little Women book and other sweet treasures! Hope that you are enjoying some lovely weather and crafty goodness!
Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend!
