I really like last weeks clue for the Bernat Knit Along. Its a nice diamond or lozenge pattern. I have two of the three colours completed. I took this picture in front of the window and it looks very grey where its really a deep green.
I started work on the alphabet blocks that I showed you last week. My friend, Audrey, was cleaning out for a move and found a set of alphabet blocks that she had embroidered more than 20 years ago. I matched them up with a set of fabric charms representing each letter of the alphabet. I adapted the pattern from a picture in the book 'Sensational Settings: Over 80 Ways to Arrange your Quilt Blocks' by Joan Hanson. My book is the 1993 version, there is a new 2004 edition available.
My dog, Atreyu, decided that he wanted to get in the action and take a nap in the middle of my work.
You can't really tell in the final picture, but there is a middle boarder of a marbled fabric. My friend is a paper maker/book binder and it was the perfect fabric to include. Also, I already had it so didn't have to leave the house. The only thing I will need to purchase is a package of Polydown quilt batting.
I hope to have this finished by next week so it can go on her daughter's bed. Its cold here and she might be needing it at her new house.
