Always loving a good bargain, I have been keeping an eye out on sale prices for Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow line and over the past year have collected this lovely little bundle.
Just perfect for the quilt which will replace my Hopscotch quilt which had been intended for my aunt.
I chose a block pieced from large sections so as not to chop up those bigger prints too much and I love them.
I used a white on white fabric (some of you are now feeling slightly queasy, I know) to add sashing and borders and I love how striking the blocks look against the brightness of the white. In all honesty, while I am often partial to a white on white print, I probably would have preferred something else for this quilt. But, as September seems to herald the arrival of every known invoice for fees - music lessons, swim club membership, school trip deposit and on and on and on - I had to work with what I already had, so w.o.w it was.
This quilt top feels fresh and clean and it makes me sigh with relief that I made a decision and got on with it. I enjoyed this quick block and imagine more of these quilts in my future as a "go to" pattern when time is tight!
Must get basting ...
