While I am hand quilting in the evening,
in recent days I have been playing with these
Anna Maria Horner voiles,
which have been in my stash for way too long!
|The floral on the left is for the backing|
They deserve some attention, don't you think?
I thought you might like to see my process....
Initially, I thought I'd do a simple patchwork,
so started with four and a half-inch squares.
They sat on my cutting table for some time, while I
pondered my decision.
Then I stumbled across Jenny Doan's quick method of
making hourglass blocks!
They start with a four patch, then another....
placed right sides together,
stitched around the outside and cut diagonally into four.
Before I knew it I had 12,
then a photo collage for the 90 I am aiming for.
I thought it was worth converting that into a black and
to help with the placement of that rich turquoise!
Hopefully, by the end of the weekend, I will have the
Then it will go into the TBHQ (To Be Hand Quilted) pile!
