Yesterday was a cold day and I had no plans to go out so I declared it a sewing day!
I finished machine appliquéing my A Tisket A Tasket blocks over the holidays. I would really like to show this quilt at The Common Thread Quilt Guild's Quilt Show this May so I left the blocks up on my design wall once they were appliquéd. I took yesterday as the perfect opportunity to put the top together.
Now all I have left is to add the border and then it's off to my mom's to get quilted.
Back in November I mentioned the Challenge at our Guild. You can click here to read up on it again.
I have finally come up with a design and would like to share with you the fabrics I will be using.
The 4 fabrics on the top are the ones that were included in the kit and must be in the quilt top. I am adding the bottom fabrics plus one more that I still need to find! It needs to be just right.
I love a good challenge. My friend M-R over at Quilt Matters has invited me to join her Colour My World - Colour Your World Challenge, which you can read about here and here.
We will be experimenting with one colour every month.
I have decided to make a 12" monochromatic star block every month. I am hoping to make a quilt out of all the blocks so I have decided not to quilt them.
The colour for January is RED. I cut out my fabrics last night and my block is up on my design wall. I am still playing with a few pieces... this is harder than I thought! I must say that I really like it so far though and can't wait to share my red star with you at the end of the month!
