Lest you think that all I've been doing is a Farmer's Wife block every day, I have had another project in the works that I have yet to tell you about.
beautiful diamond quilt that her sister got a couple of years ago, Emma made it clear to me that she likes purple and would love a Kaffe quilt with chevrons. Her request dates back to at least April of 2013, as I came across this post about buying a bit of purple KF fabric. Accumulating the fabric has been the easy part. Deciding on a pattern - not so much.
My go-to source for inspiration is always Pinterest, and I did find a quilt that I'd pinned - not once, but twice - and so I considered my options. It was mostly green, but I could envision changing things up with purple. What I liked about it was that the chevron design was handled differently. So, I guessed at sizes, began cutting, and here is what I've come up with.
Those big corners yield some nice by-products, and I am sewing them as I go for some future, yet-to-be-determined quilt. I do love the HST.
You can imagine how the sewing room looks. Mountains of purple Kaffe fabric in one area; and in another area, I have a mass of repro fabrics scattered around for the FWQ blocks. Multi-tasking is a messy business.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
