Quilting WiP Wednesday 6th July 2011
I have just discovered this amazing quilting blog full of beautiful inspirations so I thought I would add my current quilting project. I'm making a disappearing 9 patch quilt for each of my girls for Christmas - a single bed and cotbed sized quilt. My eldest requested light pinks, light blues and light purples despite me trying to swing her towards more vibrant colours lol. So I have gone with these fabrics:
Sold some old clothes on ebay and have saved enough money to buy myself a large cutting mat and 24x6 quilting ruler :-) They have made life so much easier than struggling with a steel rule and A3 mat!! My first 3 nine patches are now sewn and cut. The single sized quilt will have the the centre pink fabric for all of its small squares and I've used a blue polka dot for the centre pieces on the cot bed quilt.
Do you ever get bored of cutting and creating these amazing blocks?
Enjoying playing with patterns. Looking forward to getting all the patches sewn and cut so I can play with the final design. Thankfully my other half has a good eye for these things so I might leave that job to him.
