You really didn't think I was going to sew all those 2" squares together did you? That falls under the catagory. . . "I'm getting too old for this Sh. . . ". Still there is something relaxing about this project. I love the rhythm of traditional quilting. Just spending a couple of hours replacing the squares onto the pellon was quiet easy work. Sorta like Jigsaws for Dummies. Once again, my idea of ditching my traditional ironing board and using an ironing "table board" comes in handy! So much easier doing it on a table!
Anyways, I'll spend this week getting it all sewn together. For once I'll have my assignment in Elizabeth Barton's masterclass done early. Notice I'm totally ignoring the suggestion that I take this a step farther and use the technique to come up with a new design encompassing praise ladies. I mean that teacher of mine - give her an inch and she'll push you a mile!
hmmmm that is what I love about her!
See more great design walls at Judy's Patchwork Times.
Oh I used the pellon grid interfacing a lot! Your watercolor quilt is so nice. Love the design.
What a great and amazing collection (sorry, don't know a better English word)! :) this quilt will look wonderful.
Actually.....I love your design just as it is.....haven't thought about Colorwash in years. I was fortunate to teach on quilting cruise in the early 1990's and roomed with THE ORIGINAL colorwash creator - Diedre Amstead, (UK). She moved out of quilting and into dollmaking.
That looks like so much fun.... And at the end you will have a lovely quilt.
Wow! How long did it take you just to find all that fabric?
Now I'm wondering if there is a 2 1/2" grid. I love the way your quilt looks. What a fabulous collection of florals.
I've made quite a few 9 patches and 16 patches this year and have been put off trying to do a postage stamp quilt. I think I'll have to look out for this product.
I love your colorwash and I'm the odd ball, I do enjoy sewing all of the squares together and don't like the bulk of the extra layer of interfacing at the seam intersections. I'm working on 2 myself but wasn't going to show them until I get more done on them.
Great project! I think I still have some of that grid stuff......hummmmm, you've given me an idea.
I love your design, it looks so striking!
