Oh boy – look what I have gotten into here. I am really REALLY liking this quilt already. My daughter stayed up later than she should while I was working on it last night, and she finally passed out to sleep in the guest bed.
Clover pattern by Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co and fabric from (mostly) Posh Pumpkins by Sandy Gervais. I have thrown in some charm squares from “Give Thanks” by Deb Strain. The polka dots are Give Thanks as well. These colors are just so beautiful together! I had a few yards of the background fabric already, but I don’t recall what it is right now. This will be a great early Fall to mid December blanket:
The pattern mostly calls for cutting 2 1/4″ squares and also 1 3/8″ strips to subcut into the four patch units:
I love how this is taking shape:
And since I am making it 5 x 5 blocks, I am playing around with options for the center squares of each block. One color for the center block, first ring and second ring. I’m thinking of following the pattern and using the background fabric in the center for the outer ring, using the ‘solid’ orange for the inner ring and a dark orange print for the very middle block. See below to illustrate:
One last look at the pattern that is being made by the four patch units:
Have you gotten started yet?
I’ll end with a picture of the two tuxedo kittens snuggling with Nora this morning. Diamond is in the foreground and Rosy is sleeping on Nora’s cheek:
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! See you again real soon!
