The Swallow and the Rose
I’ve been interested in the One Block Wonder quilt pattern since I encountered it 6-8 months ago. Yesterday I decided I wanted to scratch the itch. We stopped at Pacific Fabrics on our way home from a weekend in Friday Harbor, and I bought two yards of this:
It’s in the “Light Fantastic” line by Fabric Freedom.
I spent a couple hours last night cutting out strips and then chopping those into triangles:
and then a couple hours at the sewing machine this morning making those into hexagons:
That’s about half of the fabric, I think. I have no idea what I’m going to make with it, though the color would go well in my office. I want to practice free motion quilting over a pieced quilt, so that’s the excuse for buying it and sinking time into making it. Plus which I’m loving the rich colors and kaleidoscopic blocks. It’s pleasant and skill building.
I should be able to finish up the blocks in the morning, then on to piecing!
