Mother Goose in Blue-work

This proposed quilt has been a WiP for over twelve months!
It started life as a swap on an online group I’ve been involved with for some years.
I had hoped to have it completed back in April/May,but the fates were against me.
Finally,I got round to sashing the blocks………and found that the fabric I’d “kept” for the project was insufficient—-I’d ‘liberated “some to another project!
Needless to say,nothing was available to save the situation,so I frog-stitched half the sashing of each block.
Once again I learned how difficult it is to compromise….to the degree that today I settled for another concept:
instead of a log cabin type sashing,I’ve removed the original concept completely and with new fabrics,I am settling down to an “Attic Window” approach.
Two shades of blue for the framing,and narrow black to separate the frames.
Two blocks look greatIMHO 🙂 but I’m determined to have it sashed,quilted and bound by July 6.
That’s as well as other committments….watch this space. Posted by Picasa



  1. Well, I think the attic windows look great too!! The blue are a perfect compliment to your ‘bluework’
