|Twisted Sisters pattern by Ami Simms which required her special ruler.|
I used up every scrap of the remaining pieces and schweschwe fabric in a leftover quilt which my daughter took home. See this here.

A suitably dark quilt for February. I'm pleased with how I drafted the foundation pieced corner. Blue windmill Schweschwe fabric and the navy is Oakshott.

Westminster Chimes is my first finish of 2019. It's been a long planned project since I saw a similar one from Kaffe's then current book on the Cotton Patch stand at FOQ some years ago. I upsized the blocks and the square in a square sashing pieces. There were still an awful lot of these to sew and I joined blocks and sashings quilt as you go with extra backing fabric turned under. I'm off QAYG for a bit. It did make cross hatching the blocks easier though and I got to look close up at those gorgeous Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs fabrics made for Westminster fabrics. Hence the name. Now I can use remaining Westminster scraps to finish off workshop projects from Houston and to contribute to a Jan Hassard Workshop at Oast in September.
|And this 2018 finish is having its first outing - it fits quite well on the spare single bed.|

We enjoyed a walk in the woods followed by roast pork for Sunday lunch and I made this month's Today's Quilter Carolyn Forster BOM. I did it by machine not hand as stipulated which necessitated drafting and probably more trouble though I am pleased with it. Nice and Bright.
