Had to work out the center block size and the log size , first one I made I couldn't figure out why it was not a square….
check out the picture can you see why?
Here is a bom I just signed up for I really just wanted to buy the pattern. I am not a fan of bom's I tend to get bored waiting or loose interest. But this was the only way I could get the pattern now and I have loved this quilt since the first time I saw pictures of it in Mary Kovals antique quilt booth at a few quilt shows over the years. I love red and green appliqué quilts and I love when there are birds on the quilts.
I really just could not resist it any longer...
I will be starting this quilt soon I wanted to get a bolt of the background fabric so I can prewash it, I will tell you mine will be a bit different then the original.
Isn't it just a great quilt? fun in my opinion too…
The Quilted Crow girls Leonie Bateman and Deirdre Bond-Abel,bought the antique quilt and made a pattern from it thankfully now I can make it too!
Schnibbles , Hot Cross by Miss Rosie 's quilt company. easy just went on line and bought a pdf file and instantly I had a copy of the pattern! Isn't technology wonderful? I love when it works this easily.
I have made this pattern before in just 2 fabrics and loved it but gave it away to a friend and the pattern must still be packed away. don't you just love this fabric combo, red and white ? I doubt I will ever tire of it These two are from the Midwinter Reds collection by Simpson and Minick from Moda Fabrics. Oh how I love this red. Found it on sale at Daisy Cottage online quilt shop.
Now I just need a few hours a day to sew, sew, sew! Hope you find time to sew this week too.
hopefully next post there will be real progress shown on 2 out of the 3 above projects!
