I actually have a finish to post!
My husband has an aunt who lives in a convent in Ireland (ok, actually he has THREE aunts who live in convents), but he grew up near this particular aunt and she has been a big part of his life. She moved back to Ireland a few years ago to a convent that could properly care for her and my husband wanted to do something special for her.
I also wanted a simple, classic pattern, so I did a St. Louis 16 Patch. I love the bold, checkerboard pattern that it created and if you are looking for something quick, this is it! You can find the free tutorial here.
For the back, I pieced together all the blue’s from the Studio Stash line, since it’s her favorite color.
This was also my very first project on my new mid-arm and wow, it is like learning all over again, but I love it! I just started with a simple meander, but it’s amazing how much faster quilting is with a frame and my back and arms are thank me, too.
It is now on it’s way across the sea and will probably be the brightest thing at the convent!
