When I first wanted to start patchworking around six years ago I came across this fabric and fell in love with it, well it is Blue! Because I was only learning I put it away for when I would know what to do with it properly. It has sat there since then and I had even contemplated selling it on for someone else to use as I just couldn't think of a pattern to use it in. Last week, with holidays pending, my mind started racing and I knew that I wanted to use this fabric. I didn't realise how much there was. The only thing is there is only a metre of the cream roses fabric but there are at least two metres of the blues. There were some other oriental prints in the range too and I think they just confused the issue of how to use the fabrics so I implemented the KISS principle- keep it simple stupid and ta da!
I have cut the fabrics (there will still be heaps for the borders) and I am going to make a disappearing nine patch. I think they will look lovely in the blue and cream.
I have finished my the borders on my Sweet nostalgia blocks. I set them up so I could continuously piece them. I am so happy with them and sewed up so quick! Now for the sashings- not so quick!
Have nearly got all my Friends swap goodies organised just letter 'd' to go!
I also want to get my Tisket Tasket top sandwiched and ready to quilt. I think I will manage that by hand or even have a go at machine quilting it myself. It is sounding like a list. I am loving the holidays!
thanks for all the lovely comments on my Tuesday treasures post.
Hope you have a lovely day!
