New Patterns Spring 2018, #10

New Pattern #10

is Love you to the Moon.

I love this phrase.

Since creating this pattern, I’m hearing over & over again how lots of moms & grandmas like to tell it to their loved ones.

I made this quilt more than a year & a half ago & it’s been “hanging out” in my sewing room ever since.

Remember seeing it a few new patterns ago?

After I made the quilt I convinced myself that no one would want to waste their time making such a small quilt.

So it hung…

I’ve enjoyed looking at it all this time as well as friends and family members who came visiting my sewing room.

Finally this past winter when I decided to do some smaller little Dresden quilts, I decided to include this orphan quilt.

Like my “Joy to the World” quilt, not many “in progress” photos of this quilt either.

I did ponder the background fabric.

If it’s not going to photograph well there’s no point in proceeding.

Both show the perle cotton thread well, but the lighter fabric won out.

After stitching the words, I next pondered the color of the Tiny Dresden plate.

I wanted to use this one because it was left over from another quilt,

but this version won out.

After all, it’s just 1 measly Tiny Dresden plate for goodness sake!

Add a few Thangles produced half-square triangles, & whalah!

Love you to the Moon.

You betcha, it’s on my website.

Just Keep Sewing… little bitty quilts!
