DD and I decided to make a Modern Sample Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman from Oh Fransson. This site has been enormously helpful to us with step-by-step tutorials all the way.
The Modern Sampler Quilt is made from six sets of six blocks. Each block is made from two contrasting fabrics; thus twelve fabrics were needed for the blocks. We already had seven fabrics left from our previous project* so we added another five.
This afternoon, WM and I are leaving to spend the long weekend in a cottage in the mountains for some much needed rest (for him). I will take plenty of knitting - the maximum temperature forecast for the weekend is 10*C (50*F) so I don't plan to be out and about too much! DD, SIL and GS#1 will stay here to look after the cat. Perhaps she will do some piecing on her own!!
