Often, the quilts I make appear out of nowhere, unplanned, not anticipated. I did not start this week planning to make this little quilt but that is what happened.
I had to go to JoAnn Fabrics on Monday to buy some webbing for strap handles for a bag I will be making next week (more about that after it is made!) Of course I had to browse around the store, 50% off coupon in hand. I saw the book, "Simply Retro" by Camille Roskelley, featuring traditional quilt blocks using modern fabrics. I bought the book.
At home, I pulled some pretty, fresh fabrics in rosy pink, green and turquoise from my stash. I also conveniently had 3 yards of white with a tone on tone little star (no recollection of where or why I bought it.) I began cutting and sewing happily using my "new" Singer Featherweight.
By yesterday afternoon I had nine 12" Churn Dash blocks which I will sew together and machine quilt to make my little Spontaneous Quilt.
