For those of you coming from Amy's site and visiting for the first time, Welcome to my little humble blog. I blog mostly about quilting, but a little about family and every Wednesday my blogging friends keep me accountable on my journey to get back in shape with my Wednesday Workout reports.
For those of you who follow this blog and don't know about the Quilt Festival, visit Amy's Creative Side (ther is a link at the bottom of this post) and have fun following all of the links. You will also recognize this quilt as it has been a recent subject of my posts here.
I took my 14 year old son, Jonathon, with me to a LQS and he almost refused to go in. "Dad, Are you SERIOUS? You want me to go in THERE with you!?" I told him I was going to make a quilt for him, the shop was having an FQ Sale and I wanted him to pick out his own fabric. He proceeded to pick out a bunch of very bright prints, as you can see.
I had him point out things he liked about quilts hanging in the shop and then I started designing, finding ways to incorporate the things he really liked into his quilt. So, I don't know if I designed it, or he did, but it was a lot of fun to do this project for him.
The Process Photos:
|Cut Strips and Rectangles|
|Assemble into partial blocks (Each block will |
get one of each type of partial block)
|All of the pieces stacked and ready to assemble|
into blocks insuring that no block has two
of the same fabrics.
|More Finished Blocks|
|Laying out blocks trying to keep like fabrics|
apart from one another. It wasn't until I took
this photo that I saw my mistake...
|There it is... The bottom row. Those two blocks on the left were|
supposed to be on the right, so I moved them.
Thank Goodness for Seam Rippers!!
