April is my month for the Pieced Together Quilting Bee and I am happy to say all my packages are in the mail - and it is still March (at least for a few more hours).
I am going simple this round and asking for simple block of half square triangles made from 5 inch charm squares - four squares by four squares. I was inspired by a quilt I remember from my childhood. My great aunt Sue made my sister Debbie a scrap quilt for her wedding present - at least this is the story I remember. I remember the quilt on her bed and it being stored in her hope chest when it was too warm. I also remember how cozy it was. It was made from a collection of scraps from old clothing and from old sewing projects. Nothing matched, but that added to its charm.
I am not going so far as not having my fabrics match (I am sure you aren't surprised) but I am recycling a collection of menswear shirts from my Pops' closet that were on the way to Goodwill (they were all close to new but are now more than a size too large for him). They are a mixture of stripes, checks and plaids in blue, white and tan. I am pairing them with Kona Cotton is Ash - a grayish linen type color. I am really excited for this quilt - I love the colors, the blocks should go together easy and quilting will be relatively simple with all the straight and diagonal lines to follow.
And yes, I am still procrastinating on the cathedral window block for March... Sandy, I promise to work on it this weekend!
