I was struck with a new idea during yesterday..... which resulted in a quick - so I thought , table runner Here are some pics of what is done so far. The top is all together, with lots of room for me to quilt.
I designed this patten to go on a 12" block In the right hand corner is the original 1/8th of the design which I repeated around the 12" square. I have drawn the three central white blocks with the design.
I have freezer paper ironed to the back of the quilt so it will be firm as I draw.
Freezer paper design ironed to the reverse of the block #1 andf ready to come off.
On the light box positioning it ready to draw on the fabric for Block #2
And my todays inspiration - a small flower using turned edge appliqe.... (which I still have to machine down) I have put one of these each end of the runner. It took me most of the day...and evening..
I havnt drawn on the rest as that other lovely space is for FMQ .
Now I have just to sandwich it together ....and quilt it. Maybe another UFO as I dont think it will get done soon. But I would love to get it done ....sigh
I have presents to wrap and shops to go to.
Its nearly 2am and I need sleep again to refresh for tomorrow.
