Well, the fabrics are cut for the Penny Patch Quilt Along I am doing with my sister and daughter. We are ready to start sewing! In order to be more prepared for helping (and hopefully not making as many mistakes as usual), I started my own Penny Patch quilt in fabrics that would look good on my living room couch.
The penny patch block is so fun to make! You really can’t go wrong with color/fabric combinations and they go together pretty quickly. It’s not too late to join the quilt along! This quilt is so perfect for a beginner who wants to make a quilt that’s more interesting than just solid blocks sewn together. And the baby quilt would be really simple and fast. Bea and my sister are making the baby quilt size. I’m still not sure what size I want to make, but I’m leaning toward throw size.
How sweet are these little birds? Even a block sewn backwards looks good! I’ve done quite a few in opposite order, but ripping and fixing the mistake is simple enough.
The fabrics are from Feathered Friends that I purchased at Hawthorne Threads; the rest are just from my stash or scraps.
Have a wonderful day! Linking up to WIP Wednesday.
