It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on the old blog. My excuse is that unpicking old tops and blocks, washing and pressing the pieces, and finally drawing and hand cutting 5,500 little triangles for my latest quilt is taking a very long time. I’m not complaining through — it’s actually a process I enjoy, since it gives me lots of opportunities to admire the designs in the antique fabrics.
Since I have nothing to show for all my work except stacks and stacks of triangles, I thought I would share another old quilt booklet. Stitch ‘n Patch Quilts is one of my favorites, because most of the patterns are perfect for scrappy quilts. I also like the way the publisher color printed the templates on top of the text, efficiently combining templates and instructions on one page. This booklet contains the pattern I used to make one of my favorite quilts, the Lantern Quilt.
