Eventide: Worth The Work

It's Tuesday and time to give the first report on my project Eventide:

I started with this...


Millhouse Inn fabric by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda

plus this:


Eventide Quilt Pattern Miss Rosie's Quilt Company

a little bit of ironing of these...


and a whole lot of cutting with this:
Rotary Cutter, 45Mm - Olfa - Rotary Cutters & Mats Misc Quilt Patterns

I cut, bagged, labeled and organized my pieces but with all the organization...
I still got a little confused but I worked through it
and pretty soon I had this:




The grunt work is over... and the blocks are starting to come together!
I didn't cut the fabric for the diamond inner border yet... I wanted to get the blocks layed out
to see how it looks and then decide if I want red, brown or a little something else that will make it pop!
(I keep misplacing the aqua fabrics *g*)

You have been very busy! I am watching this same quilt being constructed from French General fabrics, so I cannot wait to see how it looks in two different fabric lines.

Dropping out of lurkdom to say......It's going to be stunning. I love figgy fabrics and you've chosed a beautiful pattern. Can't wait for a reveal.

Thelma said...

Wow, I think that Fig Tree fabric is a wonderful choice for Eventide. The fabric is soothing but has some color to punch it up a notch. Isn't it funny, you started with the Ohio Stars and I saved those for last!

Take pictures of each inner border option, we would all love to help you decide...I naturally think red would look the best, but am very curious to see how the brown works out!

As always, Great Job Sinta!

I really am dying to see more! I must get into my Fig Tree stash and make something soon. It is so thrilling to see all these different versions of the same quilt!

Beautiful blocks, I like the fabric you are using. Miss Rosie's big quilts always seem to have a bizillion pieces, but they are so worth the work. I am getting ready to start a quilt of hers next month and I can't wait!
