Recently I was out shopping for a new outfit to wear to a summer wedding. The sales clerk wanted to sell me a fabric flower to pin on. No thank you, I can make one for myself! Here’s the result and the great tutorial from Julie at Gone to Earth if you’d like to try one.
Another project I have on the go is a table topper for my sister’s birthday, it’s late of course. She picked out the fabrics and left me to figure out what to do with them.
Here’s where I’m at so far. I was stuck for a long time but decided this Rail Fence block would work. I used five 1 1/2” strips to make a 5” finished block. I varied the pattern fabrics but put a black strip in each block and plan to bind it with black. I really want to try some FMQ on this. Will let you know how it turns out – now back to making more blocks.
Here’s a blast from the past. I made this charity quilt using the Rail Fence block.
Oh, and these Christmas placemats.
Thearica over at Pigtales and Quilts is having a Fat Quarter Shop sponsored giveaway to celebrate the 4th of July. We’ve got Canada Day this Friday so whatever day you’d like to celebrate entering for some of this Dottie fabric and other great goodies is a fantastic way to do it.
However you spend the upcoming weekend I hope it’s a safe and happy one,
