Recently, I have had an itching to start quilting again, and it's been a while! I've never lost the love of quilting however, and had bought an amazing book called 'Patchwork Style' last year and have dipped into time and agin for inspiration and eye candy. Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day to do a little sewing, and I learnt a new technique from this lovely book. The block is a normal log cabin block, but instead of being pieced first, it is sewn directly onto the batting like a foundation. The next thing I love is quilting the block itself, if you're making a whole quilt you still quilt each block first and then sew them together! Love that! I think it'll make it much more manageable through my small sewing machine, very excited to do a big bed quilt like this!
I love these fabrics also, a little of each from lots of lovely designers, purple, and polka dots, for me it doesn't get better than that. Unfortunately, I don't have enough of any to make a large quilt, so we'll see how what it turns out to be part of!
Happy quilting, or whatever craft you're creating with today! ♥
