|It's a top! |
Even though this was a crazy month (leaking washer, electrical range fire), I managed to get my Stonefield's blocks sewn together (my July One Monthly Goal) and, I actually made a decision on the border and finished that as well!
|You may have noticed that there are a LOT of circles in the Stonefields blocks. It made sense to me to repeat that motif with half circles in my much smaller border from the original design.|
|I also noticed on Instagram that Susan Smith had been using gray stripes in her latest design Fleur, and that inspired me to dig though my stash to come up with this Judie Rothermel Party of Twelve print. Not exactly the same as a gray and white stripe, but it's about time I use this stuff for something!|
|The half circles were all made from block scraps. After making those, I spent two days sorting though all the leftovers, cutting them into squares and strips.|
My cutting table is cleared--well, sort of--lol!
|Stonefield's was such a fun project--I loved every minute of making it.|
My pattern is now residing in Texas and I hope the new owner gets as much enjoyment from her Stonefield's experience as I did. There are a couple other Susan Smith quilts on my to-do list (Sweet William and the Rowdy Flat Library quilt) and I think both will be just as much fun!
