Do you remember an age ago I joined a quilt a-long.....well hands up I was absolutely rubbish at keeping up with it. I think I was perhaps a little optimistic with just how much spare time I actually have each week to sew....also adding in the fact that I am a crafting butterfly and flutter from project to project! Rather than enjoying the process, I actually placed myself under a huge amount of pressure and the longer time passed, the more I fell behind. So over Easter, I gave myself a stern talking too......the whole point of my precious sewing time should be for pleasure....and I decided to crack on and finish the quilt my way and in my own time.
I absolutely love the design of the quilt that Melissa created and my original plan was for 3 x 3 block layout. So my new plan of action was to use the one star block that I had completed and then as much as possible to use all the other pieces that had been pre-cut and rework them in to my new design..... here's the end result......
I have learnt so much from making this quilt, not only new techniques, but to be realistic with what I can achieve in the time that I have available.
Fabric: Quilt Top ~ Aunt Grace Miniatures, Vintage White Sheet from my stash, Binding ~ Red and White Sevenberry Stripe Backing ~ Stof Green Gingham
Size: 51" x 51"
Rather excitingly I have a little project in this quarters edition of Fat Quarterly, which is all about Pre Cuts
My challenge was to use mini charms from the Winter Wonderland collection by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda fabric.......this is what I came up with....... a jolly mini quilt......
There are some absolutely stunning designs included in the issue, so if you have a moment, please do pop over and take a peek HERE.
I hope that you're all having a lovely week, back soon!
