Love In a Mist for Doris
Doris is my kind of quilter. She's got a love of both traditional and modern quilts. She's also a newlywed who put together one of the coolest and loveliest handmade weddings ever. I'm pretty sure that if she lived here in Cincy instead of Iowa, I would totally demand that she be my new BFF.
Doris chose the "Love In A Mist" block for her month in our OBO Bee. I love, love this block!! It's so delicious and retro-yummy. She used this tutorial for us to follow. Easy instructions and a great block to use up both large and small scraps. This quilt is going to be stunning when she puts it together.
Doris' block required some precision cutting and piecing - skills that, if not practiced regularly, tend to suffer a bit. This block was a great reminder that I need to vary my projects in order to keep my skills sharp. Not gonna lie.....my block is a hot mess. If Doris gets it in the mail and decides that it's too much of a hot mess to use in her quilt, I wouldn't blame her!
