Er, quilts, that is.
I wanted to show you the fence and the apples. This is the latest Dollies Online quilt called Apple Orchard:
For some reason, this one makes me squeal especially loudly. The center is based on an antique quilt block — the quilt was made up of lots of these blocks set side by side and was all folk art-y and wonderful. If I make a larger version, I can’t decide if I would sash with fence or without and have the apples all bumping up against each other. To be pondered… I have another one of these to go with some very special fabric for a very special occasion…to be continued… Dollies Online subscribers have first dibs at the pattern but it will be available individually in a couple of weeks.
Last month’s quilt, Tumblers was also based on an antique quilt. Don’t the old quilts just make your mind race sometimes?! Is there such a thing as too much inspiration? Tumblers will be available shortly as an individual pattern.
Like the apple trees quilt, I’d like to make a whole quilt of tumblers too. Quilters have all the fun, don’t we?
Hope your week contains lots of fun and inspiration!
