6 & 6 in 2018
I was going to make A Small World as my new project for this month's 6&6in2018, however I changed my mind after the first week in January as I started to seriously work on Sweet Land of Liberty. This one is a real challenge for me. First, it has a unit a month while Small World is more just make at your own speed. Second, while there is a pattern for this quilt, one is encouraged to design your own for this primitive quilt. I like that - makes it more of a challenge. Thirdly, this is a bit of a stretch (fabric wise) for my stash as I have very few plaids, homespuns, and muted solids in my collection. So here is my first month's unit.
The top row is not sewn on - they will be in a border later on. I've learned new things already with this project. Learned a new way to make economy blocks; practiced embroidery and also paper piecing - neither of which are near my strengths. I look forward to the next month. I'll be linking with Lori at Humble Quilts and Meredithe and Anne's 6&6in2018
