Quilting or Knitting...

...that is the question!

My blue jacket is almost finished and I hesitate between starting a new knitting or a new quilt.
I have this beautiful block that was rejected from my Folklore quilt, and since I put it away I had in mind to do something with it one day, as I love the fabrics and pink is my favorite color. I am thinking of working around this block with same tunes but different blocks. 
By the time I write this I find out that I better take the time to develop a clear project and thus I will rather go on knitting for a while. I have got new Rowan yarns and I may knit a cloth for my second two months grandson. This magazine is an old vintage one that my mother was using to knit for my sister and me. I have already used several times those patterns of the 50's and found them perfect, classical and so smart!

  1. Ah ah...faire un peu des deux ? Mais je te sens bien partie pour le petit haut de bébé.....
    Ton bloc est très doux avec ces couleurs ! Quoique qu'on en dise, certaines couleurs sont indémodables !!
    Bonne soirée Christine !

  12. Your quilt block is so pretty. I hope you decide to work on it again. Sometimes the older children's clothing patterns are just perfect for today. Enjoy whatever you decide to work on.
