Is watching Outlander getting under my skin? The book Quilt Lovely by Jen Kingwell jumped into my hands, and Bonnie Lass cried out to be made. I love scrappy quilts, I love doing a few blocks at a time, and I wanted to do an "on point" setting. It's all here, the name is just incidental, right?
I worked on these simple blocks whenever I was between other projects. I would take a handful of scraps, cut them in 2" X 3.5" pieces, and chain piece a bunch. At the ironing stage, I put the colors together randomly. When I got to 99, I stopped.
(This photo in the shade gives a very blue cast, but all the scrappy colors come through.). Then I threw them out on my bed to get an idea of the arrangement. It didn't seem to matter. . . Easy and fun. I just finished sewing the last row, and here she is, Miss C and Bonnie Lass.
Miss C was outside reading and asked to pose. I couldn't resist.
Here's on of my favorite blocks, done up in my high school colors.
Now I have two quilts in the "to be quilted" queue: Bonnie Lass and Houses for H.
It takes a while to think about that quilting design. . . . .
