I know it has been a while, but I haven't just been resting on my laurels while I've been AWOL. This quilt is based on Elizabeth Hartman's Hedgerow Quilt. I made it considerably bigger than hers, and instead of using 1.5 and 1.75 inch strips, I used 1.5 and 2 inch strips. My finished blocks are 13 inches instead of 12 inches. I have 2 inch sashing between them.I got a little overzealous on this one and made too many blocks. It was going to be enormous, so I used some for the back. I'm hard-pressed to say whether I like the back or the front more.
I thoroughly love this quilt. In fact, the only thing I don't like about it is that it's not at my house. My friend Marsha had a significant birthday in October, and she LOVES Raggedy Ann and Andy, so it resides with her.
I think I will have make another hedgerow quilt. I love the look. It was time-consuming, but I think that's largely because I made 35 blocks. Maybe I'll go smaller scale next time. Aw, who am I kidding? Bigger is better, right?
Anyway, so now I'm down to 69 UFOs. I don't think I've been in the 60's yet, because I keep starting new things. This one counts for Jacquie's Joy in the New Year Challege too.
