Finally the other day I decided to just buy a few blocks, and get some extra fabric and make a smaller quilt. I think it will either end up as a baby quilt or a wall hanging.
So the four blocks I have chosen so far are:
The Quilted Crow
The Patchwork Angel
In Stitches of Williamstown
I feel kind of bad that I didn't end up choosing Natalie Lymer's block (from Cinderberry Stitches) since that is where I first found out about it. It is a lovely block and would be lots of fun to do with all that stitching, but in the end I only picked four and it didn't quite fit with the others I'd chosen.
Who knows, I may go back later and buy a few more blocks after all!
I'm giving myself till basically the end of the year to finish it. The program runs till then so I figure that's not leaving it too long. It will be really fun to be a part of something that other people are also doing, and see what other peole do with the same starting blocks!
I'm looking forward to creating the blocks, with all that embroidery! Something that I can do while sitting on the couch and waiting for baby to bake (at least for the next two months)!
And all in the name of a charity that struck a chord with me at the moment!
