auntbetsquilt


I've made some progress on my latest WiP this week, 
a simple row-by-row pretty quilt, 'auntbets' quilt by Jo from frankieandray 





2 rows of 1/4 log cabins, tick




4 rows of simple patched pieces of fabric, tick



et voila!


Lots of scrappy fabrics from my stash, including AMH, Denyse Schmidt,
'fresh cut' Basic Grey, some C&S


- along with a special piece of feed sack fabric and just a little bit of Liberty
I love this sweet mix of fabric









... and now it joins the 'to be quilted' queue!


and linking my 'modern utility' finish with Kaja & Ann here for AHIQ
and with Cynthia here for 'oh scrap'

  1. Yea for getting a top done. It looks fresh and springy. Maybe it will be quilted when spring comes around again.

  4. Lovely idea to use scraps and these charming block designs in a row by row quilt. I look forward to seeing it quilted. It will be so snuggly.

      I’ve just recently stumbled across Jo’s ig posts with her quilt, and love the way my mix of colours and style of fabrics just seemed to work too.
