I decided to join the auction for Sacred Selections again this year. It's fun to think that I have a very small part in helping children and parents come together.
I had a different quilt in mind, I started it and then I lost it.
I mean this literally.
I lost a quilt.
In my room.
I am now trying very, very hard to get my room organized.
I then decided that I'd try using the Mod Mosaics pattern by Elizabeth Hartman as a jumping off point. It was a very interesting method. At first I wasn't comfortable not knowing exactly how the blocks would look. They changed with each small white sashing strip. After a bit it became quite fun, the not quite knowing part.
Everything I used I had in my scraps/stash. I love this quilt and it feels good to make something I love from small saved pieces.
After I finished the large blocks, I was struggling a bit with my layout. It wasn't meshing they way I pictured, then Jessica suggested a smaller block in the middle. I think it makes the quilt. It's nice to have a second voice when you work! I sashed around the blocks with Kona Ash. That nearly made me loose my mind.,I even managed a couple of set in-seams. It's backed in a dark blue with white polka dot, Basic Brights Pattern No. 29398 by Windham. The binding is Kona Charcoal.
