January 31 marked six years of blogging at A Quilter's Table, which I find incredible and gratifying. I started blogging as a way to get more involved in the online quilting community, and I guess it worked! Thanks for following along through The Scrap Basket here. It means alot.
One of the first Delectable Mountains quilts I fell in love with was made by my guild-mate Carrie for our Binary Challenge. I love that you can still recognize the pattern in Carrie's very modern design.
Using a modified Delectable Mountains pattern, Elise Lea/Lovelea Designs says her Aztec Mountain quilt blocks used "half rectangles that are sewn together and cut into smaller strips" making the piecing quicker than traditional blocks. The contrasting centers add a lot of interest, don't you agree? [loveleadesigns]
Periodically, I share a studio improvement on the blog - nothing outrageous, but things that help me sew easier and get to doing it faster. I recently shared about my new Sewing Machine LED Lighting Kit. See links to previous Studio posts below:
