My friend Sandra was telling me all about a workshop she would be attending with Bonnie Hunter using old shirts last week which reminded me I had quite few striped ones I had been collecting ready to use for the shirt stripe boxes quilt by Kaffe Fassett from his Passionate Patchwork book.
This inspired me to sort out what I had with some
hindrance help from Lucy (she was getting ready to pounce in this 2nd photo!)
After much cutting, which was really easy with the Companion angle triangle ruler, a lot of chain piecing took place.
Eventually quite a few shirt box squares were ready for the fun part of laying them out to form 18" blocks
1st block done
.........and a 2nd one added. This is going to be my ongoing machine project when I need a break from hand stitching to give my poor fingers a rest when they get sore (I just can't use thimbles)
These little baskets are still being appliqued and 'quilted as you go'
The next batch ready to have sashings attached and made into rows
2 more rows ready to join to the main piece
This quilt is growing to be a bit of a big one, over the half way mark now......yeah!
Till next time, thanks for stopping by :)
