In a Pickle
|Bright colors always inspire me!|
I showed this pic last week. Just a small amount of fabric (5 fat quarters) of the Up in the Air Collection by Windham Fabrics. Just enough to do something I've been itching to do for awhile.
So, what am I going to make? True Pickledish units. They are traditional and have a close affinity to the Double Wedding Ring. In fact, some historic block books call them the Indian Wedding Ring. Nancy Cabot, writing her famous quilt column for the Chicago Tribune wrote that this block dates back to the mid-1800s! I don't know; I just like them!

Not sure how far I will get because I only had a fat quarter of each (blue and yellow). But this is when I can get creative! Stay tuned. These will show up later this month.

I left off the spikes - yikes! But it makes for a simpler quilt. But I left the spikes ON for my Sassy Mariner's Compass:
