So it's Monday. A new week and a new month and I am determined to get this last commissioned quilt made. It's going to be a wall hanging for the same lady that I made the embroidery wall hangings. More about all that here and here.
Once she had settled on a quilt that she liked I spent hours searching for the pattern. But to no avail..... so I sat down in EQ7 and designed it myself.
Here is the beginning layout. That's the easy part.
Actually I spent hours rearranging these blocks to get that 'just right' setting. Whew! Finally!
Don't you love the fabrics she picked out?
Yesterday late afternoon I started paper-piecing the first alternate block. I had carefully measured each unit and cut the fabrics that would be needed. These blocks need to be set together a specific way in order to complete the overall effect. It's going to be tedious to say the least. You'll see what I mean when I get farther along.
Soooo I get the first block sewn, trimmed and at this point I'm feeling very smug and satisfied. I have a plan and I've thought this out and all my papers are printed and I'm on a roll.
OOPS!! ......... Well dang!
I forgot that I am paper-piecing and everything is backwards!!!!
OMGosh! I hope I have enough fabric to recut!!! ;o(
Stay tuned..... today is another day and I will not be defeated! hahaha
Let's grab our coffee and head over to Judy's Design Wall Monday to see what other quilters have been up too.
I hope you're having a great day.
Glad you stopped by.....Linda
