I was ONE seam away from finishing the wall hanging flimsy that I teased you with in Sunday's post.
Then DrEaMI (drop everything and make it) popped its pretty head into view by way of Julie/Julie's Quilts and Costumes. She had made a sweet small quilt using the pattern "Around the Twist" by Trudie Hughes from her 1986 book Template-Free Quiltmaking.
I have always wanted to make that quilt. I pulled three fabrics, started cutting, and three days later I have this to show.
I used two fabric remnants from my stash that limited the size I could make. It is 41" x 50", a nice size for a wheelchair quilt.
I loved Julie's quilt, too! Yours turned out great, Libby. It's one of those designs that I want to look at up close so I can figure out the block construction!ReplyDelete
I made that quilt twice back in the late 1980s. Trudie's books were so great and some of the few speedy quilt directions available. I took a class from her in WI and got an award for being the speediest sewist. I can see why you wanted to make it, it is a great pattern.ReplyDelete
I made ATW from Trudie's book years and years ago. I'm sure it would be easier for me now! Trudie did a trunk show for our guild shortly before she sold Patched Works. The shop is still in business though I haven't been there for a while.ReplyDelete
Still admiring those zinnias in the last post, Libby. Gorgeous! How neat to have this lovely top finished...I need to choose smaller projects. Sigh.ReplyDelete
LOL!! Squirrel!!! A beautiful one, at that, Libby.ReplyDelete
Of course that project's a DrEaMI. Those fabrics are perfect together. Congrats on a quick finish!ReplyDelete
