So I started last night thinking about the first Christmas quilt of the season. What pattern to use though? Here is a quick preview of the fabric I’m going to be using.
Now, in my previous post I mentioned that it’s a good idea to have already picked a pattern out… and I did, I promise. I may still actually use the pattern I picked in the end, but while playing around with the Electric Quilt software I came across a block that with a little embellishment would highlight the blue fabric like I wanted.
The next thing I knew I was designing an entire quilt around the block I created. I have the look that I wanted but don’t yet know if I’ll change it in the end. Here is the finished test block, I still don’t know if I want to fussy-cut the fabric… it just seems such a waste, but I may end up doing it in the end.
These squares will be 8″ when sewn together with a foursquare. I should have some of the panels finished to show by the end of the week end.
