During these cozy vacation days I've been working on my latest "Stepping Stones" quilt - for one of the upcoming "graduates" of a Tokyo orphanage.
These particular charity quilts ("Stepping Stones Quilts" is part of Mormon Helping Hands in Japan) are always made from the same pattern but customized based on the recipients' favorite colors. My assigned graduate is a girl and wants a BROWN quilt.
I cut the pieces before Thanksgiving, made myself a kit in a shoebox, so I pulled it out the other day, and piecing has gone quickly. The white "sashing" is actually pieced into the blocks. It's a versatile pattern, great for scraps. It's a pattern from Bonnie Hunter called "Sticks and Stones." I just need to add borders.
