I’ll make this post short and sweet. I wanted to post some close-up pictures for my Jo’s Little Women students of our latest project called “Yankee Doodle”. The quilt is designed by Jo Morton. This was a challenging quilt. Not only are there 56 or 57 – 3/8” diameter hand appliquéd circles in the center (small and crazy – right?), but there are a whole lot of stars to appliqué too! This quilt took approx. 50-60 hours to complete. I have no idea if that is really slow or very fast; I’m just glad it is done.
The selection process. Auditioning 90 fabrics for the stars. Close-up of star applique.
Finally, this cabinet has been passed down in my family. It is over 100 yrs old and a cherished part of our family. In the storage below you can see approximately 70 or so small quilts from the Little Women Club.
Enjoy and happy quilting,
