This has been another no sew day; however, I’ve been doing tasks connected. My church quilt group inherited some unfinished projects some of which we are trying to finish. One has trimmed pictures of Indians with fusible web. I found some fabric in my stash with similar colors and an Indian type design that I thought could be a possible background fabric. Do the Indians get lost or would they look better on a plain background?
I love to play with designs in EQ. Wednesday a member of my church quilt group picked out a scrappy design from “Garden Path” blocks in Scrap Quilts Using Fast Patch by Anita Hallock. I drew the block in EQ and started playing with variations that would be easy and the size we want for prayer/comfort small quilts. Here is the first block variation and sample quilt.
Then I changed the block again and here is the sample quilt. I think this is more interesting. The blocks are made from a half-square triangle and squares pieced like a nine patch block.
