This morning I started to cut the fabric I picked for James & Tamara's quilt. I was asked to make one for their wedding and finally I have started, even if its only cutting.
Pinning these two working newly weds down with colour, style and quilt patten took some time as I was asked just before their wedding if I would make a quilt.
Their colour choice is green (Tamara's fav) & blue (James' fav) and after trying to find a jelly roll in this theme and not finding any. I ordered yardage off the internet and then had to wait for it to arrive.
I have added the fabric on the left to the collection. This was from a Red Rooster scrap bag, I had ordered earlier on.
Last year I was given some birthday money from a craft group I am in and this book was one of 2 I ordered. I wanted something to show from the $$$ after the fabric I bought was gone.
This is the sampler quilt the kids have asked me to make. I love star blocks and I am so excited as these blocks are 3 different sizes.
Patrick gave me this little ruler as a stocking filler last year. I have used it already for 3 blocks and its so easy to use. Pat bought this ruler one trip to Hettie's Patch. I knew I took him there for other reasons than to see Bob their cat....lol
As the blocks are made I'll post a photo of them here.
I haven't forgotten those senior quilts either. They are ready for my little sew trip away in just under 2 weeks. Looking at getting three tops made while away.
