Some people leave for a trip or outing and worry they’ve left the iron or coffee maker on. I worry I’ll leave the house and forget to bring some kind of handwork to take along. I once had a lunchbox filled with fabric scraps, English paper-pieces, needles & thread… the who schebang. My little handwork travel kit. My big fat plans: I was going to make a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. As it turns out… I made placemat.
Time to rethink the name - sounds like Granny’s a wee but saucy. Luckily Quiltmaker found just the perfect name for it: Pink Lemonade. I’m so excited for my block to be in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 3, and once I read the cover - my excitement escalated and I pee’d all over myself.
I made my block in Rosalie Quinlan’s beautiful Sweet Broderie fabric by Lecien. I did a mock-up quilt in Photoshop - wish I could sandwich and baste a real quilt as fast as I can in Photoshop. Are you listening The Great Gazoo?
Another mock-job, this time in Happy Mochi Yum Yum and white. I hope my block is given a try and the process is enjoyed as much as it is for me.
I’m told Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks will be out on May 10th, so be sure to look for it. Visit the entire blog tour and see a heaping spoonful of blocky goodness. Two copies will be given away on my blog - one from me and one from Quiltmaker. Leave a comment by this Saturday morning (PST) and I’ll have random.org pick two winners.
