I took some time out this week to pull out a pattern to work on a charity quilt for my guild. I find them a great project to work on in between more complicated or challenging projects. Sort of mindless stress free sewing.I have a rather large stash of Tilda fabrics, some fairly large pieces and lots of small scraps left overs from previous projects.I cut 5, 2.5 by 4.5 inch strips from multiple prints. Like lots of them.! It didn't even make a dent in my Tilda stash. I found Cozy Stripes a free Tilda World pattern on line. However, I didn't really follow the pattern very closely, just a general direction of the instructions.
I had a nice white floral print and just started making ten inch rows and sewing them together.An afternoon here and there and I now I have 4 rows. The width is 62.5 inches and with an addition 3 more rows the length will be 70 inches.
My daughter's peacocks, but not sure why the pool is so interesting. Maybe interviewing as life guards. The three teenagers in the middle and the pea hen on the far right, plus Fred the old man on the far left.
Easy to see they are in full courting dress with their beautiful tail feathers. The little pea hen doesn't seem to prefers any of them as her companion. Those flirty boys are a lot of bother.
I am jealous of your Tilda strips!ReplyDelete
Love the fun project!!
Lovely stripes! Beautiful and sweet color fabrics, with a pretty sashing.ReplyDelete
These peacocks are fun!
What a great quilt top - nice way to use up a collection of fabrics from the same designer.ReplyDelete
So there are 4 male and 1 female peacock? Curious why so many boys (I know nothing about peacocks, can you tell?). Love your pretty donation quilt. I'm trying to get three ready to go to quilter.ReplyDelete
I like your quilt! Someone is sure going to like snuggling up with it when it's done!ReplyDelete
So cute!!! The quilt and the peacocks! How does your daughter keep them home? They look like they're loose.ReplyDelete
Hi DonnaleeQ! What a fun quick charity project. That will be a nice generous finished size. And those peacocks, looking at the pool. Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
So beautiful. You're so talented.ReplyDelete
I love the peacocks. Their colors are amazing.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
Your quilt is going to be fabulishious! And the peacocks look pretty good! What a great shot! Have a fabulishiously Happy Day!ReplyDelete
Great idea for a so called quick quilt! Love those peacocks, from a long distance so I don't have to hear them calling for HELP all the time! Would love to have a bouquet of those feathers though, like the Victorians did! Oh, wouldn't kitty go crazy over that!ReplyDelete
Oh my whiskers, I've never seen so many peacocks at once!ReplyDelete
Purrs & Head Bonks,
When you have fabric as beautiful as that.....a simple quilt pattern is perfect to make them shine! Nice going!ReplyDelete
I like your Tilda top -- it is coming along nicely. Sorry all that cutting didn't make a dent in the collection! Maybe a second one is in store for you!ReplyDelete
The quilt is so pretty already! And the peacocks do look a bit suspicious :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up at 'My Corner of the World' this week!
Another gorgeous scrappy quilt in the making. The colours in those peaocks tails are stunning.ReplyDelete
Such a pretty quilt! I haven't used Tilda fabrics but have been really admiring them lately.ReplyDelete
Love the peacocks. Aren't they quite noisy?
Such a lovely quilt design thanks for the info. It's always a good idea to have simple doable ideas for donation quilts that can be stitched up quickly.ReplyDelete
As always, love the peacock photo.
It's such a sweet quilt. I love scrappy.ReplyDelete
Your Tilda stripes are making a pretty quilt! I love simple designs like that. The peacocks are so funny! They must all be trying to impress that hen.ReplyDelete
Your Cozy Stripes quilt is coming together nicely. Pretty PINK bits for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!ReplyDelete
Nice simple sewing is a great palate cleanser between bigger projects. Such pretty fabrics too.ReplyDelete
What an adorable little quilt. Lifeguards - I love it!ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt...love all those pretty colors.
I agree with Alyeia...Life Guards on duty!
Have a great day!
So love Chinese coin quilts. And the Tilda strips are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Those Tilda fabrics are yummy! And oh so pretty in the quilt you are making. Someone is going to really love it when you get it finished. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
That is going to be such a lovely quilt. Sometimes the beauty is in the simple approach. The peahen looks so small & boring compared to the big over-achievers! Ha!ReplyDelete
