Now you'd think that I would have been content with the Sawtooth doll quilt I made last Friday but NO! By Saturday afternoon all I wanted to do was make another doll quilt but this time from my stash of pinks and browns. The promises I'd made to myself to tackle the weeds in the backyard and invite my brother with his lawn mower to afternoon tea were nothing but a distant thought. There was no plan, other than I love the little Four-Patch in Squares Quilt pictured in Childhood Treasures by Merikay Waldvogel, p92.
So eager and impatient was I to start and finish the quilt in the next hour that I gave no thought to the overall size of the quilt. Got to laugh at this, I did. Sunday morning saw me unpicking the sashings, and by the afternoon I'd made the decision to remake the blocks, but this time a tad smaller.
At least the second time around I had a better idea of what I was doing. And there was no agonising about how to make the most of the Fat 1/8 of pink for the sashings, as it was already cut. I like to think they work better this time.
All I have to do now is quilt and bind it, oh and make a decision about what to do with the first set of blocks. They're too nice not to use!
