What’s more appropriate than a “Little Black Dress” for New Year’s Eve? This quilt by Mary Fons is probably the closest I will ever get to wearing a little black dress on New Year’s Eve. Probably warmer than the tradition little black dress as well. Apparently the pattern was in the Quilty magazine (Mary made the quilt in 2012). My magazines aren’t organized in any fashion so it will take me some time to find the pattern. My solution to that problem, create the pattern myself….I do that a lot. Whenever I see a quilt I like, I immediately look for the construction process and mentally sew the pieces together in my mind. I’ll have to see if I can create these blocks with 5″ charm squares or maybe from a layer cake.
2016 has been a challenging year for myself and my family, but by supporting each other we have survived with our spirit intact. Life challenges are meant for personal growth. We all have grown. Love to all. Happy New Year.
