Since today is Shakespeare's birthday, I thought it fitting to show the 2 Shakespeare in the Park quilts I've made... This is a Judy Martin design - I got my directions out of the Jan/Feb 2001 Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, but I know it is also in one of her books, but I just don't know which one! The finished quilt is 76.5" X 93.5".
The first one I made was the blue one - I wish I had a better photo, but this will have to do for now. It is very scrappy with almost every single piece of fabric within each block different. The quilt was so easy to make and went together so nicely, I made another one - purple the second time around, still scrappy, but not as scrappy as the blue one. I am not sure the scrappiness shows on the close-up - the whites are all different whites/white-on-whites so it is subtle.
And how do you keep a zillion pieces organized? Zip lock baggies - clearly labeled with a Sharpie pen. See...
I've seen some other very lovely Shakespeare's on other blogs in different colors. It has gotten me to thinking about another Shakespeare... maybe reds and yellows?
