Something new…

Remember my trip to Hancocks in Paducah? I bought this bundle of Noteworthy by Sweetwater.

Last night I started cutting it up.


I cut enough for two different nap quilts. I have a certain friend in mind for one if these. I used my 3″ x6″, 3″ square, and 1 1/2″ x 3″ dies for my studio cutter. Before bed, I pieced a few blocks.

There have been a lot of quilts with this pattern floating around out there in the blogosphere, but it is actually a pretty old design.

This picture is from the book Glorous Quilts. This quilt was made in 1918 to raise  money for the Red Cross by Jessie Orndorff and Dricilla Orndorff. They charged their neighbors 10 cents each and then embroidered their initials into the quilt. It was presented to President Woodrow Wilson.

I made mine with 9″ pieced blocks.

It is another beautiful day that God has given us. How will you spend it?

Loving this verse today:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
~Lamentations 3:22-23

    Yummy fabric! Did you hesitate at all before cutting it up?

  2. The fat quarters are scrumptious! It occurs to me that you must be a mighty good wife to have such a good husband. I like this quilt and its story. Especially appreciate your telling which dies you use. That always helps. 😉
