Square in a square blocks

October 16, 2012

Hello Everyone I feel a little guilty that I have not had the time to post for a while, it seems that time flys by and before you know it another month has gone by. I have got so much to share with you all, I have been doing so much I do not know exactly where to start. I will start by showing you what I have been up to today. Square in a square blocks, the latest quilt design I am working on. I need to make 72 of these lovely blocks and I am almost there. Here is a sneak peak at what I have done so far. A tip for making these blocks, is to cut the outside triangles slightly bigger. This way you can trim away the excess to get the perfect finished size block. Of course there is also applique in this quilt and I am loving the fabrics and the softness of the colours. I also have a sneak peek at one of the applique blocks still in progress. The picture has come out a little dark but you get the idea. You will have to wait unfortunately to see the finished quilt but hopefully not too long. I am hoping to have this design ready for the Melbourne quilt market. Although time is running out fast, and my schedule is full. So its pedal to the metal on my sewing machine to get this lovely quilt ready. Happy Stitching Sharon
