Here’s a bit of the work of the day so far, for a new show quilt to enter into the IQA show this year, codename Accessorize Me!:
This is going to be a fun quilt! The print fabrics in the middle are (l-r): Michael Miller’s Bubble Blast, Patti Paisley, Peace Flower and Pretty Stripe. Fabrics on the outside from stash. I just ordered more of all of the prints, just in case since these were fat quarters and the shop here is all out. Ordered lots of the paisley print for backing. (I know that my best friend Dawn is reading this and nodding her head, thinking “It’s about time you got started on that quilt!”)
All of these will be combined with a Hoffman Bali Batik in a rich brown for some fun appliqué blocks, and quilted with variegated Rainbows thread. There just may be some silk thread, jumbo ric rac and embellishments added (yeah, that was a teaser). At least, that’s plan A. I’m off to play some more with the block designs. Stay tuned!
