I have two of Maxine Rosenthal's books - one Block Wonders and One Block Wonder Encore - and always wanted to make one of her quilts. But only after I've seen my friend Hilde's quilt I finally got serious. The beauty of making these quilts is that you only need one fabric (and a contrast for the border). It's fun to see how each hexagon makes a new pattern.
I'm pleased with how it turned out. I haven't decided yet how I will quilt it. I'm tempted to hand quilt it myself as I haven't done any hand quilting in while.
This book and the charm pack arrived here last week. Marnie from the Smith Mountain Lake Quilting Store was kind enough to sponsor the Valentine quilt contest (which I won), organized by the Quilting Gallery . Thank you very much Marnie!
And if that wasn't enough I also got this lot, which was a gift from me!
I, like so many others, just love the Dr. Seuss fabrics and I'm intending to make a quilt for my daughter who is a brand new primary teacher. The solid coloured charm packs I want to combine with the charm packs I recently won at an auction. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the Little Menagerie Fat Roll, but that's beside the point. I just wanted it, and that is rather that ;).
And now to my next project. I've decided I won't buy any fabric for it and only use my stash. This is what I found:
I hope I'll be able to show you more next time.
Till then, take care.
