- sew fresh fabrics - scrap quilting bee -

Talk about keeping busy! 

The lovely people at Sew Fresh Fabrics have been feverishly sending out little packages of scraps to those of us who signed up for round one, to make a 12.5” x 12.5” block that will go toward quilts for Project Linus … Sounds good to me … (and we can keep any leftovers! Yay!)  My block is for a girl's quilt.


So, I thought I’d start by doing the centre with this lovely block from I_like_orange_too … It involves strip/foundation piecing, which is something I’ve never tried before … 


How much fun is that?  - and sooooo quick!

I then went kind of improv on the rest of it … All I added from my stash was the cerise polka dot to give it a bit more of a girly thing ...


I really like it, although I would never have used any of those florals before … hmmm, I’m seeing patterns quite differently these days - much more in terms of how they interact with solids … Interesting how our ‘eye’ changes, isn’t it?

I'm entering this and the BendyBloodyMary block into Quilt Story's Block Party - Have you entered anything?  Hurry on over (click the banner below) deadline is Wednesday 9th - there are three categories - Traditional, Modern and Art ...

Now to focus on my Urban Home Goods & Make Mine Modern Swaps … yay!

What new things do you have your eye on trying this year?
