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.
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.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.
There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles.
Here's how it works.
I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.
