So.. I have finally begun my Noah & Matilda journey. Read all about it on Collector with a Needle’s Blog (here). Dawn and her daughter have created some wonderful patterns for a number of antique treasures and this is one I have been wanting to start for a long time.
Here is my first block, quilted and bound. I have chosen to make it in the potholder method (big surprise!).
My color palette will be 1890 antique and reproduction neon fabrics.
I am calling it "Noah and Matilda's Ruby Anniversary Cake". These fabrics would have been a popular choice at the time of their 40th wedding anniversary. Since my 40th anniversary will be in 2018, I thought it would be appropriate. I also like to give all my potholder quilts a title with some sort of cooking reference thus the word "cake". I modified the first block a bit by adding the circle in the center. Mainly because I made a bit of an error in the quilting which I wanted to cover up!
This is going to be fun! Want to take the plunge?
