Hello Everyone!! Finally this week. I have a new project started and there is something on my placement wall !!. Also something to share,there hasn't been much sewing lately but back into the swing of things now.
My current project I am rather taken with as I just love the bright colours of my Storm at Sea blocks .
There was some preparation over the weekend and my dear husband helped me with this .He put the square I wanted on graph paper the size I wanted and drafted the block for me enableing me to identify the different shapes in the block. Then using a ruler and a pen marked my template plastic 1/4 " (6mm) beyond the edge of the shapes. Cutting out my shapes on the lines and marking them accordingly. 7 different shapes marked A-G. Storm at Sea is a 4 patch block on a 16 by 16 square grid.
It is only the second time I have used templates.
My first time is the quilt below.
After Storm at Sea I would like to make this bed runner.
The bed warmer at the end of the bed. The colours would really match my bedroom.
Just for fun I will add these.
Notice the sign on my sewing room door. That is to remind everyone that I am a princess but nothing happens so it doesn't work. haha
