A star on a sunny day
I thought this block would be great fun. I looked up "Wandering Foot" in some of my quilt block books, and this is what I found.
I drafted a pattern on a 4x4 piece of paper and pulled out some nature prints. Hmmm, those pieces are mighty small and my prints are rather large.
Oh well, on with the plan.
16 tiny curved seams later ... I am wondering if I have bitten off a great deal more than I can chew.
Why am I saving those templates? I don't think I will be trying this again soon.
Hunting through my cat prints there was not one cat resembling Dusty. If you want to see him, check out the header on Quiltin Cats. Most recent pictures are sleeping on quilts so this kind of fits.
The wandering foot represents life in an RV, trucking around the country and taking us along with beautiful photographs. The bird in the bush represents Sandy's wonderful nature shots.
Sandy and I have been blogging friends for just about as long as I have had my blog. I think of her often when I begin to complain about cramped loving space. What fun it would be if one day our paths should cross.
One more thing to celebrate is my + and X quilt is now a finish.
It is way too windy for taking a picture of something this large. Maybe later in the week there will be better conditions.
I had plenty of white bias but I didn't like the look so I decided to turn the dotted fabric from the back to the front.
I can't believe how long this quilt has taken to complete. I need to find a large washing machine now to get this quilt clean after it has spent so much time in Scout camp, on trains, planes, buses and meetings. I look forward to seeing this on our guest room bed.
