A few weeks ago, I had a hankering to immerse myself into making some traditional blocks.
So I whipped out my 130 Mini Quilt Blocks book by Susan Briscoe and found the Double Wrench block hiding in the Country Classics chapter.
‘That’s the one I want to do!’, I whispered to myself.
I plan to create a quilt that predominately features a traditional block design but is constructed with bright and colourful modern fabrics that have differing scaled prints and designs.
And I think I’m on my way to achieving that…
So far I’ve made 35 14cmx14cm (5 ½ inch) squares with 7 more to go to complete the size quilt I want.
When preparing the blocks, I found myself patiently taking the time to cut, piece and iron each little unit that makes up one block and finding it hard to resist taking some scrumptious photos along the way… (and flooding my instagram and twitter feeds!)
The construction of these blocks are easier than you think and I find that as soon as I’ve begun making one, I was onto constructing the next within minutes!
So when time permits, I’ll sew up the last 7 blocks, piece them altogether and save and save and save for some batting and then get this baby quilted and bound!
Happy Sewing! xx
