I was so taken by one of the quilts pictured in Randy's post that I started working on my version of it the next day! Now a little over a month later the top is almost done!
Here is the original!
Then it was just a matter of sew a strip-flip-iron-snip-audition-repeat.
audition...looking from a distance sometimes helps?!
I plan on making this quilt again only using my 1800's scraps or maybe
'30's. Then it really will be scrappy like the original! The foundation fabric was a cheap loose weave cotton which I would not recommend! It did not hold it's shape very well. I think the next one I will use blank newsprint paper. It will keep it's shape better and tear away easily when I'm ready to sew the final large pieces together.
I feel like my quilting is off to a great start this year lots of fun ideas in the air (and internet)!
Happy sewing and quilting in 2015!
cheers, Claire W.
