Martha at Q is for Quilter is releasing a new Mother Goose Quiltie pattern each Sunday. The illustrations are by Ruby Short McKim, 1920 and were originally printed in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
I have stitched the first two Quiltie Patterns, Mother Goose (#1) and Old Woman in the Shoe (#2) on a ten inch piece of muslin in red (321) perle #8. I'm waiting for #3 to be released today. Good thing I took a pic because I can see a few lines I missed stitching.
I think it will make a cute baby quilt paired with a Mother Goose book.
1718 Coverlet Progress
I prepped a lot of 4 inch blocks for my last vacation but only finished the four blocks in that center row. I'm making the blocks all by hand in the traditional method used by the maker- mosaic patchwork. My blocks will all be in solids fabrics.
I've been having some problems with the next block on the top row. When I finish that middle block the bottom row will get added to the top row.
These are a couple of my hand stitching projects for summer since I don't have air conditioning and it gets rather warm hand quilting a quilt.
