I must say that I'm a big fan of simple patchwork quilts -- as in just squares, nothing fancy. So that's what I'm making now. I had the fabric above leftover from a quilt backing. It really is very cute and my daughter loves it. So I started cutting 6 inch squares.
Then I started looking for matching fabrics in my stash and scraps.
Then I looked for more coordinating fabrics.
And more. These are all cut from fabrics which I already had. Many are large scraps leftover from fabrics which I used for backing or sashing in other quilts. I need 238 squares and I think I have about 200 cut. I think the quilt will end up being double-sized.
And finally, thanks for the great comments on the Lego Sewing Machine. I tweaked it a bit to make it look even more like my real machine. I fixed the base, widened the top a bit, added that little thing near the needle (I don't know what it is, but my machine has something similar there). Eli found a different perfect little spool of thread too. I think it is the inside of a tire for a little Lego car.
Have a great week. Posted by Riel Nason on The Q and the U
