Can You Guess What I'm Making?
Progress for my immensely huge (32" x 78") quilt for the SAQA Seasonal Palette exhibit continues. Making a big quilt is a challenge for me now. It's cause I have such sort arms. (See this blog post to view the beginnings of the quilt.)
Can you guess what part of the quilt I'm making from the photo above? Don't worry, I'll tell you.
Using the Accuquilt Baby Go! fabric cutter, I picked a die with lots of pointy ovals. After cutting out a bunch of pointy ovals, the ovals are cut in half with a decorative rotary cutter blade (pinking).
Then I make flowers. The flower centers are free-cut from yellow fabric and the flower petals are assembled around the center. Each flower is fuse-tacked onto release paper, a great way to store them until applied to Spring quilt. It's like gardening without the soil and sun but just as much fun!
