I feel a bit guilty about calling my dolly quilt 'Ugly Squares' because I think it turned out anything but ugly.
For the hand quilting, I did as was suggested in the pattern - quilting a diagonal line through each of the blocks. I didn't add any quilting to the border. It's only narrow and I didn't really think it needed it.
Finished size of the quilt is 13.5" x 18". A very nice addition to my collection of Dolly Quilts.
Kathleen Tracey hasn't posted a new quilt for April yet, and I'm waiting to see if she will be doing one before I start on another little quilt.
I really enjoy the projects she suggests because it helps me see the quilt designs in a new light. I had already made this Strippy Triangles quilt in totally different colours and if I put this latest one next to the original one I made, you wouldn't believe that they are the same pattern. I certainly wouldn't have thought to use these fabrics in that quilt design. I think it's a winner!
Sweetwater Label Crew...
Each month you receive a pattern and some fusible labels to use in the pattern. For March, the pattern is a tablerunner with applique flowerpots on the edges. The sample is made from their lovely Noteworthy fabric.
I have some of that fabric left over from my I Pouches design - but not enough to make the pattern as suggested so I think I will be a bit creative and make mine a bit different.
I'm looking forward to receiving this month's instalment. The pattern is for some placemats.
Until next time
