Two things have been on my to-do list for some time. A patchwork ball and a mini quilt with Madeleine’s initial “M”. It just so happens that the milk, sugar & flower fabric was the perfect line for both of these projects.There are a couple of versions of the patchwork ball out there, but my favorite one is from Rashida Coleman-Hale’s book I Love Patchwork: 21 Irresistible Zakka Projects to Sew. The ball is paper pieced and hand sewn together with pentagons and triangles. I think that the linen triangles add a perfect balance to the fun and bright colors and just really make them pop! The mini quilt ended up a little larger than the mini I had in mind, but I’m absolutely loving it. I haven’t quite decided whether I am going to hand quilt or machine quilt it yet. But for now it’s going to hang and look pretty until I decide. P.S. Did you see that Madeleine’s bunny also got a new dress to match all this milk, sugar and flower goodness?
