July Small Quilt a Month Challenge
I think this is a new record for me, and probably not one I will beat this year - my July quilt is actually pieced, quilted and bound and it is only July 8th! Not too shabby, considering that the July quilt wasn't announced until 7/2!
This month's quilt is from Kathleen Tracy's first book, American Doll Quilts. It is called Indigo Blue and White Doll Quilt. I was nervous about this one - all these triangles - how many points could I get nice and sharp - and meeting nicely with it's neighbor? Well, I am satisfied with how it turned out. I was tempted to go onto the web to find true "indigo" reproduction fabrics and shirtings, but I stuck to my stash and used what I had - lots of blues, but the lights are mostly not shirtings, and the darks aren't all indigos! It was fun to do a 2 color quilt.
