But in the meantime, I made another practice block. This time a paper pieced block by Sew What, Sherlock? called Caeser's Crown.
So I called my mom up and had her pick out some fabrics from my stash. I knew that I would print the pattern a wee bit smaller to have a smaller block (they regularly finish at 24 in), so I planned on turning it into a pillow for my mom (hence her picking the fabrics).
She chose oranges - Two from Happy Go Lucky and one Timeless Treasures print.
Then I set to work making the block...
Cute, right? But once I made it, I wasn't sure that I wanted to use it (the pattern, not this specific block) for my original purpose anymore.
Then I quilted it and everything changed.
sister's quilt was easier, more fun, and turned out better than anything else I had ever tried.
Now I feel a need to make and quilt more small things. I think my mom's new office may need a mini...
And perhaps a few pillows.
