New Quilt Project

This last week has seen the start of a new quilt project.

This is is reproduction of an antique quilt that I bought at the 
Auckland Quiltmakers Show in May.

I am using a range of fabric from my stash and some of the 
recent "Putty and Mortar" range.

I need twenty-five of these blocks.

Some are paler while others have a bit more depth of colour.

Studying the old blocks in the antique quilt has been fun, as 
the quiltmaker who is unknown, has not made them all 
regular like this one. 

Some vary like this - 

- did you spot the odd one out?

Others are even more varied

So they have been fun to make and to wonder why she did this.
Was she running out of fabric?
Or was she being quirky?

Oh if only old quilts could talk and tell their story.
