Are you getting some quilting in this afternoon? I am just sitting down to my sewing machine now, after doing a bit of laundry (boo). I wanted to share with you a pattern of mine that will be debuting shortly and the inspiration behind it.
I saw this quilt in a book of quilts from the 19th century and was immediately inspired! I have no idea what this block or unit is called, but the multi-colored scraps used to make this quilt makes it interesting.
The block unit is easy enough to replicate and I thought it would be a great pattern to use up lots of scraps! Here is my pattern that I call Paper Lanterns. I call it that because when the units are stacked together, they look like those colorful paper lanterns you can find at craft or dollar stores.
My pattern contains 2 table runner projects and I think they are a fun way to use up left over 2 1/2″ strips. We all have stacks of those, don’t we?
Look for this pattern to be release at the end of the month or the first week in April. It’s still going through the testing stage because I want it to be an enjoyable project for you!
