Description

I am rather partial to foundation piecing and liked the Civil War Diary quilts I saw online and during a serious bout of Startitis, I envisioned it as a scrappy quilt, using fabric from my stash, without any repeats of fabric between blocks.  I made one block. The plan on getting the top completed before the end of next year.

I was sorting through my magazines yesterday when I saw Scrap Basket Garden in Fons and Porter's Easy Scrap Quilts Fall 2011 (try saying that with a mouthful of quilting pins! lolol) and immediately dived into the Den of Inequity aka my craft room and pulled out my solitary CW block and a few matching fqs.....A new project is born!

When a project lies in the UFO box mocking you, daring you NOT to finish it....There is only one thing to do....Finish it in any way you can!!!!  This one is now a productive member of the FO society....as a placemat.

What an interesting pattern piecing! I don't think I've ever seen that before (I'm a quilter, admittedly, but you know what I mean). :)

Cfgriffith The block is courthouse steps. It is a variation on a log cabin block. smile

Thank you, True . The fabric came from a fq bundle I picked up at my lqs that I was itching to use.

Beautiful! Colors very much like the orphan napkin I use as a table topper on the end table next to me, but if I had yours, I couldn't bear to cover it with anything :)
