Square by Square


One of my plans for 2015 is to make a patchwork blanket.
I already have the materials to make one so I got started last week.
 At the moment I'm stitching together my fabric pieces. I'm doing it square by square and it's slow going but I've decided that as long as
 I can work on it steadily and get it finished in a couple of months,
 I'll be very pleased.


I'm using two Moda charm packs that I've had in my fabric stash
 for quite awhile now. Well, two years to be exact. I guess it's about
time I use them! Anyway, I love the different colours and patterns
in all the pieces and having them pre-cut in 5inch squares make
them great to use for simple patchwork projects like this.


I have 81 squares in total and what I'm planning to do is create
small blocks made up of nine fabric squares and then sew these
together to create the whole blanket. 

These strips of squares were sewn together this morning.
Once I've ironed their seams I'll join them all to make my blocks.


So far I've completed two blocks. Seven more to go...


I think this will turn out to be a small blanket, more like
a throw or a lap quilt. But I'll be happy with that. Anything
to keep us warm and cosy is always welcome and
hugely appreciated!



Thanks for stopping by here. I hope it's been a good Monday
for you all. See you soon!

  4. Gorgeous colours, it will be such a splash of colour when finished. I like the mix of patterns too. I'd love to have a go at making a quilt, just another item on my list of "I'd love to make".
