Nicole wants to surprise a friend with a quilt, so some time ago, we created a very simple pattern on EQ6. Nicole then bought a gorgeous layer cake of the Bliss range by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, so we rejigged the measurements of the blocks to ensure a more economical use of the fabric.
It took a couple of hours to decide on the prints to use in both the pieced and plain blocks and where they were to be used - and another couple of hours to decide on the layout!! During this time we also decided it was too busy if we used all the prints everywhere, so we introduced a vanilla solid to rest the eyes. Once we were all happy, (and having 2 of us with very random styles and 2 with a greater love for symmetry, no wonder it took so long!!) ) it was cut, sew, iron, cut, sew, iron and by the end of our session, we had completed all the pieced blocks - Nicole just had to go home and stitch them together.
We did a fabulous job ladies!!
