The Pickle Dish collections were released on the weekend and I couldn’t resist making this instead of the classic red and white pickle dish I had planned to do. Something about a summer picnic dish wall hanging just seemed like the right idea for now. I had cut and pressed fabric to freezer paper, printed my shapes and cut them out and was stitching within a few minutes of downloading the collection. While I’m hand-piecing, I’m sure this could be easily machine pieced as the curves are very gentle. To that end, Linda even included a template for paper piecers to print out and use for that method. It is an amazingly simple block to stitch with the matching points and stitching lines that Inklingo prints. I really can’t imagine making this block with any other method!
There’s an absolutely fabulous Design Book as well, which is free to download. There are lots of great tips in it for stitching both Pickle Dish and Double Wedding Ring quilts.
More greenery from the roof garden. After the weekend, during which we did have some rain, I think it’s probably even greener out there now. Maybe some flowers will start to show up soon too.
It was a rather hectic weekend and I haven’t really looked at blogs or even replied to some comments yet. I hope to get back on track after Tuesday. In the meantime, if I haven’t responded to a comment, please know that I really do appreciate getting comments and always do respond — eventually. This is one of those “eventually” times, it seems.
