|I just saw the snippet of fabric on the left side of the quilt. Please ignore!|
|Again with the snippet!|
These are all cut free form (pretty obvious, huh?) I based the quilt top on one that I saw on Moda Bake Shop called "I Dance in Circles". I knew I would love it in batiks so I pulled these out on Friday. I have to pick up more batiks to make the quilt about 60" square. I am really liking it so far. No, not my style or anything that could go in my house but it will be perfect as a gift for some dear friends.
As for the piecing, I watched the YouTube video suggested in the tutorial for "I Dance..." and it was really easy and fun. I concentrated on only watching the edges of the fabric and the edge of my quarter inch foot. If you position your hands as demonstrated in the video, it works perfectly.
Snow or wintery mix or something heading this way for the weekend. I have a couple of baby quilts I am going to quilt and I have to start cutting the fabrics for my grandson's birthday quilt. I have several movies lined up to watch on Netflix so I am ready for some serious sewing time in the studio.
Speaking of my grandson...those of you who have been following me for a while know about our very premature baby boy who arrived last February. I thought you might like to see a recent photo of him. This is a photo taken at Christmas.
Chronologically he was 10 months old (gestational age is 7 months). In just two weeks he will be a year old. He is the happiest baby imaginable with absolutely no problems related to his early birth. I absolutely adore that smile and those chubby cheeks!
Off to fill up the coffee pot. I am writing this at 5:30am and I am going to NEED some coffee! Hope you have a great weekend.
