wintersweet quilt - take two


I was never totally happy with my version earlier in the year of my "wintersweet' quilt, pattern by Jo from frankieandray and so, when I pulled out a little pile of 9-patch blocks from the cupboard, I decided to make another version.

On their own, they all looked a bit uninspiring. As I didn't want to waste them all, I added in an assortment of other fabrics from my stash and made up lots more 9-patches. I was trying to be mindful of getting some cohesion happening with all these assorted blocks, but other than playing with the light/medium/dark options, I just went for it.

. . .  and again, it's not completely like the pattern, but I think it's certainly got Jo's informal scrapalicious vintage feel to it.  Linking up this week with Kelly for 'needle and thread Thursday' here. Until next time, Linda

  8. This is a wonderful quilt full of scrappy goodness with a wonderful vintage look. I want to run home from work and start making scrappy 9 patches now. But alas, my boss would not be too pleased...

  9. I love the way you play with florals! After admiring your scrappy gorgeousnesses I checked my own stash and found that I don't have many florals - clearly they've been escaping my notice when I fabric shop. I will now remedy this!
