I have been asked to present a program for the Piecemakers of Milton Guild in August. They have asked me to present my "One of a Kind" program and I have decided to make a new quilt for the demonstration.
Here are the very first blocks up on the design wall - so cute already!!
I brought everything down to the kitchen to cut out.
I got out my green, red and aqua scraps, which were all in one place :).
Without any panels or orphan blocks to use I decided to make some new blocks and drew up a tentative layout on graph paper.
I brought down some of the sections from the previous quilt I made using these fabrics, just really to give me some inspiration.
I have made 5 pieced tree blocks and have started making the filler blocks.
These tree blocks will get borders around them to equal 12 x 12, but I'm waiting for a while to see what colors I'll need to keep things in balance.
Here is the previous quilt using the pillow panels. It's such a happy quilt.
Here's the book that has given me so much inspiration and my first group of fabrics. I cut my own jelly roll from my stash - so fun.
I always make a graph paper pattern. I cut out separate blocks to scale and use scotch tape so I can move them around. When I have the blocks set where I want them. I then fill in with 4" blocks.
I'm having so much fun today, these are happy colors.
