When I gave my youngest daughter an anniversary mini-quilt and rack in October, I knew I would be supplying new quilts as the occasion arose. I made Thanksgiving and Christmas quilts, then realized mid-January she didn’t have a quilt for her table topper. I made what I call an “interim quilt” which means it would work out for non-seasonal, non-holiday display.
Last year about this time, I spent some time making some of Judy Martin’s variations on LeMoyne stars. I particularly liked this one called “Country Fair“. The block I made is far from perfect and convinced me I didn’t want to make a big quilt from this block, but I still think it’s nice as a mini-quilt with some strips added to fit the rack.
I quilted it to a fleece backing, added sleeve, label and binding – and my daughter has an interim quilt to display until time to put up the Valentine’s Day decorations.
