This morning, Quilters Newsletter Magazine’s Facebook post stated that, “March is National Quilt Month! It’s the perfect time to start a new project, or maybe finish one of those UFOs (or PIGS – Projects in Grocery Sacks – as Lori would call them).”
So in keeping with National Quilt Month, I did start a new project yesterday. The pattern is called Random Reflections and is by KarrieLyne from Freckled Whimsy. The pattern is available on the Moda Bake Shop site and is free for the downloading. This quilt should finish approximately 60″ x 60″ and will be perfect as a lap quilt.
I picked this pattern because the darker strips resemble books on a shelf. This quilt is for someone who loves to read and who has included books as decorations in her wedding planned for later this year.
All fabrics in this quilt are from my stash. So although I promised myself I wasn’t going to start anything new until my stack of flimsies was done, I can rationalize starting this new project because at least I was not out there buying new fabric to add to the stash. …somewhat of a compromise. :)
