Basting :)

New quilt projects

La passacaglia quilt, my first rosette, there is a facebook group you can join and share yours.
I have a lot of jelly rolls and this is a perfect project for using them.

With this quilt I am trying to use the fabrisc I have in my stash ( with the odd new purchase) so its quite scrappy and not sure how they will look put together. I am having fun with it though as its so fascinating how the look of each rosette can change by the placement of fabrics. There is a facebook group  where you can see these amazing versions of the quilt. Its been a learning curve too, as I am not very experienced in colour theory, and have learned to see tones in fabrics and so on, even bough myself a wheel and a red glass to look through :)

Hand applique raw edge for the first time!

This is a center block for the new quilt I am making, it is a Laundry Basket Quilts pattern, Edyta Sitar has such beautiful fabrics and wonderful patterns it fills you with a warm fuzzy feeling when making them!

I am going to hand applique, never have on raw edge so wish me luck! A little apprehensive but I am going to plunge and have fun!
