Thank you, Alyce, for giving us this chance to practice HST techniques. I learned a great deal and feel more confident making them now. Due to family circumstances I was unable to complete the entire set, but did complete twenty blocks. Instead of a large quilt, I’m planning to use them for three or four smaller projects.
My two Pinwheel row quilts were also given to Project Linus. They started when I received a giveaway of 92 HSTs, which I turned into pinwheel blocks. I had enough for two quilts, adding rows of some pieced blocks and a lot of precuts. The backs were made with the leftover fabrics. Somehow I missed taking full pics of the finishes.
I took part in Modern HST Sampler with Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts I completed 20 of the 24 12-inch blocks, two a month. This Folded Box was a substitute for one of those. I love the 3-D effect and am going to do this one for RSC17.
A VERY TIMELY PRIZE
Here is another of my antique small quilts, probably made about the 1870’s to 1890’s. It is sturdy and in good condition. The outer border is a four-color print of a paisley type. It could have been used for a hot pad.
FALL IS IN THE AIR AT LAST
