The Painted Leaf mini no. 2 might've made its way to its new home, but the low volume/oakshott #insideadditionquiltalong blocks are here to stay.
This project snuck onto my to do list a few months back when Jessica (@alittlegressica)—aka my Sew Down Nashville neighbor—posted the block instructions on IG:
As luck would have it, I happened to have a double rainbow's worth of 4" oakshott strips on hand. So I got to work cutting them into squares, and then rummaged through my low volume stash and repeated the exercise.
Within no time, I had stitched countless HSTs and started playing with a gradient of cooler tones...
Which were shortly joined by the rest of the rainbow.
To make this.
And if you look closely, you'll notice I snuck some mini charm squares (trimmed to 2") into the mix (Carolyn Friedlander's "favorites" and Tula Pink's "Moonshine").
Why? Probably because Jessica did something similar during our class with Carolyn Friedlander last spring, and I've been wanting to borrow the idea ever since. ;o)
With any luck these blocks will soon be our eldest's newest nap time quilt for preschool. Or for mommy. Because we need naps too, right? ;o)
