Cloche Hat

My Intown guild always has a group quilt in process. Basically, you get quilt blocks made to your size, color, pattern, etc. specifications and assemble. I’ve talked about it before, I think. One member keeps the master list of when members “join” – it’s not an official sort of thing – and we go in order.

Our latest member to get her quilt requested a hat, shoe, purse block since she (ahem) likes to shop. My absolute favorite hat is a cloche. I own several, and want to buy more. A girl can always use a cute hat, right? I wanted to use bold fabrics, and I wanted my hat to have a little interest. The leaves are from an old Amy Butler fabric, the ribbon is a Lakehouse fabric, and the “pin” is a Timeless Treasures fabric.

We were asked to put some bling on it, so there may be jewels in this blocks future, though I’m not entirely certain yet….
