Prototype


Thanks for some nice comments about the quilt I described in the last post. Here is the first one I made, which for some inexplicable reason I didn't think suitable for a girl. My niece Becky is having a baby in a month, so she'd better make it a boy. The yellow squares are actually a much softer and prettier shade of yellow than they seem in this photo. Enjoy it: I don't think I'll make any more quilts with these fiddly boats. I do think the blue fabric with the stars on it was a good choice.

Did you paper piece the boats? That would be very fast.

No, Candy, paper piecing looks too complicated for me. So I do need those lessons. Maybe this Fall?

Paper piecing is really easy and it allows you to make everything perfect. Every quilt I see now I figure how to paper piece it.
