Been having a little play with some ideas that have inspired me, so instead of wondering and filing them away I got on and stitched. A bit like Victoria says in her 15minutes play.….. it really does help liberate your creativity!
Congratulations on the new book Victoria, can't wait for it to hit the shops!
I saw this quilt over at Nifty Quilts , and just had to have ago at the block:
I used a quick method with a Half Square Triangle ruler, and although it means all the bias is on the out side edge of the block, due to the speed of making it I think I could forgive it that!
I made a little bitty bag:
Really cute, not my usual sewing thing, and I made the pattern up as I went!
Then I saw this quilt from 1910 in a Japanese magazine:
I played around, and have now started my own:
Again, not the sort of thing I usually sew as each blocks colour choice links to the next, so there is a bit of planning and some organisation involved. To help with the organising I ironed and cut lots of fabric so I can just dig in and sew. I think mine will be more scrappy than the original, but I will see what emerges!
To see what others have stitched this weekend, why not go over the the Fat Quaterly Blog where you can see how much everyone enjoyed the Retreat!
