Around the Block

Around the World
Last January, my mentee, Lauren asked me to make her a purple quilt.  She had graduated to a queen size bed and had outgrown the pink one I previously made her.  I loved this Kate Spain line and since it was purple, it worked.  I used Around the Block, a pattern by Sue Pfau.  The only problem is that the finished size (which I thought I made a lot larger) is 66 X 66!  What to do.  I haven't added the border yet, so that may have to be a bit bigger, but not sure I am going to reach the true queen size for this one.  although I like it, I don't love it-too much orange, I think.  But you never know until it is bound and quilted!

Wonky Nine Square

I have managed to squeak out one quilt during the craziness of the end of the school year!  Here is my very first wonky nine square made with Lotta Jansdotter's Echo line.
