I’ve always been attracted to the Pickle Dish block, so I tried it in a small quilt measuring 59cm square. I rarely use red fabric in a design so that was another trial, too. The mustard-coloured print makes the red triangles pop. I hand pieced and quilted this quilt.
Making small quilts is a useful way to try out new ideas before investing in larger designs. They are also easier to handle and obviously quicker to finish – definitely reasons to make more!
