Someone....once upon a time...made a block.
This is an oldie but goodie.
Since the fabric used by this unknown quilter is SO thin...
I decided it would not suit a quilt.
It WILL make a nice table topper!
I did the easiest thing and added a 2 1/2" border to the block..
I had some fun doodling stitches with my feed dogs down!!
The more stitches I added, the more I liked it.
I have three more orphans to rescue!!
Wish me luck!
I like it too!ReplyDelete
That looks great. Well done! :0)ReplyDelete
Fabulous job, I had to go back and look at the original cause I couldn't believe what a difference tha border and quilting made.ReplyDelete
It looks a little Mexican 'tilish'. Good idea.ReplyDelete
Great idea. I like the FMQ on it.ReplyDelete
Perfect! Love the quilting.ReplyDelete
It is difficult to believe that it is the same block.ReplyDelete
A great job indeed.
wow the quilting really makes this little quilt!ReplyDelete
You chose your fabrics really well to blend with the original block. Love the bright print the quiltmaker used!ReplyDelete
What a great rescue! Lovely quilting Beth.ReplyDelete
Wow, that turned out fabulously! I look forward to seeing your other rescues.ReplyDelete
..."with the feed dogs down"...yep, I read that and realized that I forgot to do that last time I free motion quilted. I guess I'm glad it went so well.ReplyDelete
At any rate, I definitely agree with what I've read above-- your quilting adds so much to this block, love it!
