A Holiday and A New Block
I'm home from a Thanksgiving trip to Ohio, trying to get back into the swing of things. (Always a struggle with kids I think!) While I was in Cincinnati, I made my usual stop in at
. I just love that shop. This is owner Julie - she is just great. The picture above is part of their ribbon collection. It's so beautiful.
Today I spent the morning cleaning my disaster of a sewing room. I have a hard time working in a mess and it had gotten way out of control. Now that I have a tidy space, I've cut into my Oakshott Cottons.
I choose a pattern from Elizabeth Dackson's Becoming a Confident Quilter and paired the Oakshotts with some Essex Linen.
I think I'm going to make about four of these blocks and turn them into a mini quilt. The blocks are larger (17-1/2" unfinished). I love the classic look!
