New Design

April 19, 2013 3 Comments

Hello Everyone

I cant believe I am organized and on the ball early today. I have had a design floating around in my head for a while and have finally committed to making it.

I found the perfect fabrics for this project at the Melbourne Quilt Market from Lynette Anderson ( Follow my Heart). I purchased a fat quarter pack and they are just so lovely. I am really looking forward to using these in this design. Lynette has always been a favorite designer of mine.

I have also found a great new photo editing site called Pic Monkey, don't you love what I was able to do with this picture. Such a lot of fun and so many options to choose from.

Well I bet you are wondering what this design is ? Well I have played around on my computer and come up with this to start with, the size of my quilt design may grow as I progress as there are loads of fat quarters in this bundle as it is the whole range so I am not limited to the size of the quilt.

My-Home-Town

I have thought of a name for this project. ( My Home Town ) I thought this would be a good tribute to the little town I grew up in.

I would love you all to follow along with me on this project and share each step, the decisions and changes I make along the way. I would love to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, mine will be hopefully weather permitting filled with getting my garden into shape.

Happy Stitching

Sharon

Sharon: I just started following you and really enjoy your designs. I love applique with a folk art flair but not too far to the primitive side and your designs have really attracted me. I look forward to watching this design develope. Thanks.

I think you have a good design going there. I like the applique flowers that make an X in the design. Does that make sense? One in each corner and one in the middle.

Lemoyne Stars have always been a favorite of mine, although they take a little time I think it is time well spent. Have you ever made these lovely stars? I always found them a little intimidating but with a few a steps that are tried and true I found them easy. Here's how I went about making mine.
