Before embarking on a big quilt project I like to do a couple of test blocks to see how it is going to go.
My plan was to do the quilt Remembering Rebecca in honor of my friend, Jill Reid. Here is the start to that quilt. The stars finish at 3" and with the sashing it will finish at 5". You can see the quilt HERE as it was published in QNM. I decided that 3" stars were a little small for me to want to make 98 of them! So this will be a small quilt of Remembering Rebecca and I will do a different quilt to remember my dear friend.
Here are two more test blocks using a Lori Smith pattern. I will be taking the fabric with me to work on during my retreat. (after 4th of July)
And while I was working on small blocks I did the latest installment (the smaller option) of the Market day sew along.
We will be making a whirlwind trip to Boston to spend 4th of July! I've been doing a little planning, although "whirlwind" is the best description. If you have any suggestions of restaurants/diners/coffee shops in the Back Bay area I'd love to hear.
