I have been playing with gingham!
Elizabeth over @ Occasional Piece-Quilt,
along with Cindy @ Live a Colorful Life and
Krista @ Krista Stitched
are having a Project Gingham Party!
|My gingham 'guests' mingling at the party!|
And I dug around in my stash to supplement the
wonderful fabrics Elizabeth sent me!
And found the perfect pattern called "Jitterbug"...
Now I know I'm old, but the jitterbug was well before
But this checked fabric reminded me of
Chubby Checker and the 60's...
So I call my project "Hucklebuck!"
(BTW I already have a quilt named "Twist & Shout")
......."Do the Hucklebuck......"
Each individual HST unit in these blocks finishes at
And each of the five blocks is 9"...
It is now a table runner....
Final measurements- 12.5" X 53"
I quilted with a variegated Aurifil (28 weight) and
used 50 weight in the bobbin, as recommended on
Can you spot the piecing mistake? Ugh....
I only realised when it was too late!
Never mind, I love it anyway!
Happy 4th July to my 'Stateside' readers!
