I did not move from home as the weather was still freezing cold, so all i did was sewing on these courthouse steps.
A frugal project, roughly 18 were waiting in a bag and i have now about 50.
Still 40 to go, i need 90 for a comfortable size plus border.
Each block masures 6 inches, and it's all in the fabric:
The dark ones are made from french aprons.
This kind of fabric was still available in incredible varieties when i came to Paris in 1970,but these are antique ones.
The light fabrics are pieces from men's shirts or remnants from quiltfabrics.
If i cannot find the borderfabric in my boxes, i will buy some.
It's boring boring to make the blocks, but i LOVE to see the pile growing.
Especcialy the dark fabrics are sturdy , but yet easy to sew.
More later, Will in Paris
