I've been making progress on my latest dolly quilt - Schoolgirl Sampler Quilt.
This block is called Square in a Square. I like the pink and blue combinations.
Initially, I thought making a lot of small blocks (4") of different designs would be quite fiddly but to my surprise I've found it to be very quick and quite addictive.
I think the fact that I'm sticking to Kathleen's colour scheme makes it much simpler. I'm also only using fabric that is already on my work table (for Dad's quilt) which makes fabric selection much easier.
As you can see from the colours I've been using so far, that the quilt is blue, brown and pink. Very reproductionish.
Last night on Channel 7 I watched a new show called Downton Abbey. I really enjoyed it. The first episode laid the foundation for some interesting plot developments so hopefully it will live up to that and will stay enjoyable to watch. Sometimes I watch a show for the first time and like it and am then disappointed ever after! Will have to wait and see.
Until next time
