The quilt of a thousand steps actually didn't take
as long as I had thought it would!
(Lotti is always trying to get in the picture)
I enjoyed the journey very much and it was
even more delightful to be sewing along with Nicole
at Sisters Choice blog... I think
it made the whole process that much easier.
I loved the original quilt made with Rainy Days fabrics...
and it had been my intent to use my bundle of that group.
I ended up going with Petal Pushers but added a
few fun polka dots and stripes to add
a little attitude.
I learned a few new techniques in the
process of making Crop Circles.
I think I have a good handle on
machine applique now..
by the time I got to the last circle I think
I really got the hang of it! ha
I am super happy with this pattern. I
always love Dresden blocks... but I had never tackled this
style of Dresden before.
Now I have!
I particularly like the side borders.
Carrie always adds a nice little
element to her designs.
a look. Hildy and Bea were also sewing along with us but they were
using a different pattern. One by Jen Kingwell.
Nicole has used Jen's fabric to make her Crop Circles.
The fabric line is gorgeous.
Which is why I will soon be making a quilt using that group!
Here is a link to the free
pattern using her fabrics!
