Petals

August 25, 2015 in QUILTING

TA DA !     Here is my ‘Scrappy Summer 2015 #1 quilt top ‘Petals’ all completed. I wanted to make a simple quilt that would show off the floral fabrics but still make a statement. I had originally planned for it to be set straight (just to be different) but the quilt demanded to be put on point. What’s a girl to do! It did make for some very long diagonal seams. I love the look of the background grey fabric – it allows the floral fabrics to shine.

Here is my inspiration. The photo is of Kaffe Fasset’s Diagonal Madness quilt. Same but different and definitely not as busy.

Wow !!     Can you believe it is already July. Where did June go? Here is what is going on in my studio.

Petals Petals – here is what I am doing for the first of my ‘Scrappy Summer 2015’ quilts. A simple quilt of squares and four patches.

Batik fabrics Batiks – I have many batik fabrics hanging out in my stash. It has been ages since I used them in a quilt so decided that they would be perfect to use for a couple of easy designs I want to play with. So far I have chosen 18 batik fabrics. The first quilt idea will be some version of a nine patch.

2015 Leader & Enders Here are some of the units I have made using Bonnie Hunter’s Leader/Enders idea while working on other projects. I must confess that sometimes I sew more than one at a time. I am anxious to get more on the design wall to figure out the layout. I am at a point now that I need to go back and cut up some more squares and rectangles from the recycled shirts.
