So I’ve decided to begin a Valentine’s Day Quilt. I’ve been working on these blocks between projects and when Miss Philippa (who happens to be two months old today!) will let me.
They are super easy to make. I took a charm pack (Kiss Kiss from Abi Hall of Moda) and just sliced vertically and added a solid 1″ strip. After ironing the block I sliced it again horizontally and added another solid strip. I’m mixing my solids up to match most of the colors in the fabric line. They are a lot of fun to make. I’m not 100% sure what I’ll do with the blocks when they are done – one charm pack (especially when you lose the seam allowance) doesn’t make a very large quilt on it’s on. It will be fun to see how it ends up. It’s also fun to sometimes sew without any real plan!
This is my favorite block so far – I really love polka dots!
Oh, and if you want to see what an oh, so sweet, adorable, irresistible, two month old Philippa Rae looks like, look no further. Is it any wonder I’m having trouble finishing any quilts?
