Last week I showed you my Bloom Bloom Pow cutting all finished. It was hard to wait until Friday for the next lot of instructions, but once they were up - I headed straight for the machine! This quilt along is fabulous, even more so because I have absolutely no idea what I am doing! I have literally just had to follow the instructions by Lee and cross my fingers. Another great part of it is the Flickr group, where you get feedback about your progress - including Lee's! Good to know I'm doing it correctly.....
|These were my first two blocks. It's hard to imagine, but each block gets cut in to triangles and makes up a bloom. Strange yes?|
|And after a few hours sewing, this is what all the blooms look like put together! I seriously could not be any happier with my final fabric selection!|
|And this is my other piece to show and tell this week. It's a big old row of chevrons, to soon be attached to my fly by the seat of my pants quilt. I think I've worked out what I want to do with this quilt. I want to make it rectangular. This could be wrong, but I'm just winging it. So the chevrons will go across the top and bottom of the square. Watch this space.....|
(Apologies for the crap photo, but lighting has been shocking in Melbourne of late!)
I've said it before, this range of Sarah Fielke fabrics are just beautiful. But as I have mentioned, I am no mathematician, and was two HST's short in width for these rows. A quick trip to Spotlight fixed that - and you will be impressed to know that is all I bought! Well, except for some stretch fabric (GASP!) for a little experimenting.
