It's a new flimsy!
86 x 86
I started making blocks back in July 2016 after I saw a blog post at Kathy's Quilts about a c. 1886-1890 quilt made by Clarissa White Alford. You know I just love to make my own version of vintage quilts that inspire me!
There are 1296 QSTs (Quarter Square Triangles) in 36 twelve inch (finished) blocks.
I've had all of the blocks finished for awhile now but I just could not decide on a fabric for the sashing. Then a few weeks ago I received a surprise package of WOWs (white on whites) from a friend and in the box was the perfect sashing - a muslin like fabric lightly printed with what looked like Queen Anne's lace or maybe Yarrow. And after I figured out how much fabric I needed for the sashings I was pleasantly surprised to find there was just enough. So I immediately set about sashing my blocks before I forgot what I was going to use for the sashing and used it with some other quilt.
This will now go into the hand quilting pile so you may not see Clarissa again for awhile.
My January OMG (One Monthly Goal) was to assemble at least one top from the large box of complete block sets. This is top #3. The first to be assembled was Dakota Farmer (Stars). Quilt top #2 was Blue Economy Blocks.
