I am the luckiest blogger EVER to have such great blogging designer friends! LOOK at what Norma Whaley, from ‘Timeless Traditions’ gifted me…
LOVE her newest pattern ‘Remember Me”…and I am so glad that Norma remembered me! She is always so generous with her talents and patterns! This one is magnificent! (and I’m not just saying that!!) Seriously, unless you take the pattern out of the envelope and REALLY look at it, you don’t really get a sense of the quilt!
This quilt is a cotton applique quilt but you could easily substitute wool for the applique pieces! As usual, Norma’s instructions are clear, concise, with tons of pictures…yes, she takes care with us visual learners! LOVE the churn dash blocks with the four squares inside…and my favourite block…the circle of flowers in the right hand bottom corner because inside that circle, Norma has embroidered “When this you see, remember me.” How sweet is THAT! I am SEW going to be making this quilt!
Norma also sent me ‘Cottage Garden’…a cotton and wool quilt pattern! ***SWOON!*** Of course I had the whole pattern out lickety split…
This quilt looks big but it is quite small in real life…finishing off at 33”x 44”…and see those wee squares…they start off at 1 1/2”! And the wool appliqued blocks… well…‘dang cute’ are the ONLY words to describe them…finishing off at a wee 5”! LOVE THIS QUILT!!
So now I can add two more quilts to the TO DO LIST! Thanks, Norma, I needed that!! haha Seriously, THANK YOU! I love them both and hope to do them justice! Looks like I will be looking for fabrics…but the good news is, with both these two quilts I can shop STASH! I love scrap happy quilts!
This morning I’m off to the garden to pull a few…ok..A LOT…of weeds!…and as I pull I will be dreaming of wool flowers and cotton flowers for my two garden quilts! Part of the fun for me, with this whole quilting process, is the planning and dreaming of future quilts…what about you? Do you do that too? Yes, it’s a dirty job but someone’s got to do it!
Have a wickedly weedy Wednesday…and happy quilting!~P
