A sister quilt

Miriam needs a new quilt of her own so I decided to make a sister quilt using the leftover fabrics to Nora's quilt.

I think they'll look quite nice together. The new one has some stronger reproduction fabrics in it and was inspired by this one. I changed the setting to a four patch in an economy patch as I like the way the setting triangles set off the four patch fabrics.

This is going together quite quickly as I am piecing it by hand during my daughters' dance and music lessons. I used to hate waiting around but now I look forward to the sewing time. Summer will be here soon and that's when I get some unbroken time to quilt (luckily it is a small quilt and won't be too hot to sit under).


  1. It will be a perfect companion quilt!!
    I love the special minutes we can sneak in a bit of stitching:)

  2. The colors are wonderful. I love how portable hand sewing projects are so you can work on them anywhere!

  3. Love your 4-patches, and they look so sweet with the other quilt. You really have an eye for putting the colors and prints together.
