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.

Now that the holidays are well and truly over, and we have started the year 2020. I am back in my sewing room while the house is peacefully quiet, my process for starting the new year is to finish some of the quilts that did not get finished at the end of 2019. One of the quilts to finish is the Treasures in the scrap bin quilt from the sew along, and as I am working on it I would be like to share my thoughts with you.

Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.
