Starting The Finish Work On a Garden Quilt
Well I'm finally going to be able to start back to work on a quilt I stated a few months ago.
Yesterday I was able to get the center of the quilt drawn. It took me a couple of hours to get it drawn and photographed.
I was able to get the sections of the garden drawn in that I felt were the highlights of the garden.
I didn't want this quilt to be to complicated but from the way the drawing turned out I don't think it will be as simple as I had envisioned.
The next thing I need to do is to draw a black line drawing on top of the plastic that I have over the surface of the quilt. This is what I use to help me place the small pieces of fabric as I cut them.
I will be using cotton fabric and probably some sheer fabric for the flowers of the Iris plants.
I also wanted to do a small quilt for my son's upcoming birthday which is in February.
Since he likes lighthouses that will be the theme of the quilt. He also likes blacks , white and grays. So I will use those colors in the quilt. I've done a black and white drawing for the lighthouse quilt but have not had a chance to pick out the fabric for the quilt.
I will post pictures later next week of the lighthouse quilt.
I will also have to do my black line drawing on the plastic I have covering the quilt.
