We presented the quilt top to Marie on Wednesday. She was very pleased and just about cried.
And here are my siggy blocks I've done so far. I need 23 more.
On Friday Feb 27 three of us from Kraz-z Quilters traveled to Denton and Lewisville to shop for backing fabric for Marie's quilt. We stopped at Jo-Anns, Tuesday Morning (Priscilla needed a gift), Linda's Quilt Shop in Denton, and then Quilt Country in Lewisville. While at Quilt Country there was a sample on the wall that got me thinking. And I had a brain storm. You heard the thunder and lightning right? LOL I can't stop thinking about what can be done with stacked fabric. Got it bad don't I? I don't know if you've heard of the Many Moons and Miny Moons templates that The Quilting House in Breckenridge, Tx has designed. I bought the Mini Moons
template and stacked four layers and have sewn up several to give it a try. What's neat is that they make their own sashing. I wasn't sure the Miny Moon would be small enough to best show the kaliedoscope effect so I did some figuring (great mathmetician that I am LOL) and went to my dishes and found a saucer that would work for cutting smaller ones. Hence the smaller block in the photo. The smaller ones are a little more tedious to sew though. I think the effect is just fine with the Mini Moons and will probably stick with them. What do you think?
Blessings and happy quilting,
