Thank you so much for all your wonderful suggestions for Jenna's quilt. Between all the extra comments that came through for the Jelly Bag and my plea for ideas I just couldn't answer them all, so please accept my thanks here. Many of you suggested that I just buy the doona cover and make a quilt to match. As much as that's a terrific idea the shipping costs prohibits that, but it was one of my first ideas. I'm waiting to hear from a longarm quilter to see if she can duplicate the details with quilting. If not then I'll go to plan B, which is to twist my son's arm behind his back and suggest he buys it for them and then I'll make a quilt to match.
All these lovely bright squares that Hollie chose for her graduation quilt are slowly being put together.
Probably not colours I'd normally use, but it is fun to see them come to life in her quilt. And these lovely plaids have already
I managed to get side tracked, which seems to be quite a regular thing for me with these little blocks. Melly & Me have a great little tutorial on these done with interfacing as the foundation. Having traced off half a dozen of these little blocks I thought there must be an easier way of getting an accurate blocks each time I trace.
So I used my EQ5 and drew up a duplicate block and printed it onto the non-stick side of some freezer paper, pressed it to the interfacing and hey presto a template that doesn't move while you're tracing.
There's a giveaway over at Old Red Barn (link on side bar). Dana is giving away a truly scrumptious quilt, so hop on over and add your name to the pool
The amount of lovely people who leave comments has risen hugely, and many from new to me bloggers, so I'd like to ask a question. Call me nosey, I just like to know stuff, plus I'd like to think I'm adding content that's of interest to others.
