One of the first spring storms rolled through the area today, so while Tony was out chasing, I had some wonderful rainy time in the sewing room. This is a quilt I have been wanting to do for some time now–I wanted to do a modern style quilt that utilizes a large scale fabric. I just made it up as I went…laying the fabric out to see what it would look like and then cutting. It’s a lap size that I will use for myself and for show and tell at speaking engagements. My inspiration was Denyse Schmidt quilts and how little piecing she does in her quilts.
The main fabric in this is from Heather Bailey’s newest line.
I also did a ruffle along the top of the squares just to add some texture and interest. Sort of the unexpected.
See how easy quilting can be! It is as easy as sewing chunks of fabric together! See what you can do.
That’s totally cute! I posted pictures of my first quilt on my blog… check it out! http://babyleesch.blogspot.com/2009/03/mommys-first-quilt.html
