This time more a photo post without many words.
- Eastern in Spain is a very traditional church festivity with many processions and celebrations all over the country. Here a few pictures taken at our local village.
- Kate’s version of the Fire & Ice quilt pattern
- I have finally made my choice of color, fabric and thread for my Skill Builder BOM
That’s all for this time, Barbora
First stash in 2013 has arrived : 2 thick envelopes came from Hawthorne Threads. I have ordered the fabrics way back in December and I am so happy that they are finally here. Take a look on the wonderful colors and designs from Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection (somerville study, sloane and sienna) – these fabrics are just the right ones for quilt backings. As soon as I saw the “somerville study” with all the books in the shelves I just could not resist.
And the last photo shows the Notting Hill Collection in magenta designed by Joel Dewberry and has a total of 12 different fabrics. Once more the colors and designs are so fresh and bright. This stash is for a custom quilt and I shall start working on it right away!!
One more photo from Star Gaze quilt classes – this one is from Mary. The colors reflect the Spanish flag. Guess what colors it has – yes, red and yellow.
On the other hand I have finished writing the quilt pattern “Fire & Ice” for the classes. I have pieced nearly all the blocks, over the weekend I should be able to sew the quilt top together. This time it is a “quicker” quilt. Both cutting and piecing is not so time consuming as with the Star Gaze quilt. I have opted for log cabin and bento box blocks. Both blocks are good for practicing – not only precise cutting but also precise sewing. Here a preview of the “fire” log cabin block :
The finished blocks are 12″ x 12″. I have written this pattern either for a single (60″ x 84″) or for a double bed (84″ x 84″). As soon as I have my quilt finished, I shall update my pattern section and post a pdf.
One more word to the fabrics. All are Kona Solids from Robert Kaufman. The colors are exceptional, love the warm reds, pinks and oranges. But my favorite ones are in the bento box block – you can see them in my next post!!
Happy quilting, Barbora
