This is the third in a series. I made the first in 2007, and the second some time between then an now. I’ve been appliqué ing the circles down for a few years and finished a few weeks ago. It’s not pieced but seeing this quilt on my design wall makes me one happy mama.
I eyed some indigo fabrics at market for three years. Maybe longer. Every time I was at market I wanted to buy them but couldn’t bring myself to do it. I finally made the plunge when I was pregnant with Q-Man, and knew it would be a while before I was at any market. I’veContinue reading “Indigo Quilt”
Last July, I asked several quilter friends if they would like to be part of a round robin. There are no rules, but we each have six months to complete our border and send it to the next quilter.
