It was a very sad week last week with the loss of our dog. For two days I was far too miserable to get anything done. After my injury 4 weeks ago and all the stress of our sick dog, I have a long "to-do list" to deal with! However, my husband and I went to the S.C. State Fair on Friday. It was a beautiful day, but was it ever crowded! It seemed like we sat in traffic forever before we got to park. Congratulations to my many quilting friends who won ribbons.
I said I would try to review a pattern or book each week so I photographed the cover of one of my favorite books yesterday and will write a little about it. It is Slice 'Em & Dice 'Em by Nancy Brenan Daniel.
Easy Does It
Scrap Bag Shadow Boxes
Trip Around the Scrap Basket
Arizona Road Trip
Spring Baskets (the quilt shown on the cover)
Large Blue Star
I have used the pattern for "Nautical Stars" several times. It was the pattern I selected when making quilts for my newborn grandsons. I like that it has a large panel of fabric in the center which was great to show off the Dr. Seuss fabric we chose. The quilt finishes up at 33 1/2 x 33 1/2" - a great size for a baby quilt. Here is a picture of one of the quilts that I made using the "Nautical Stars" pattern.
I hope that everyone has a good week ahead!
