Today's quilting task
I am currently working on class models, as I am working as a quilting teacher locally.
These last 12 months I have done nothing but new models,
and as soon as this class starting upcoming Monday is up and running,
I want to do something just for ME !
My upcoming class is a Quilt-as-you-go class,
and today I am making blocks for a 4x4 table cloth.
The blocks are Huge to me, who love the Dear Jane size, 4,5"
These are 10" and the finished table cloth will be 40" x 40"
This is the first project I have bought fabrics for in ages,
and I think it will turn out good !
2 of the 4 front fabrics are from fabric collection.
I am using thin cotton batting - Quilters Dream Cotton Request.
It is very thin and soft,
and I like the feeling it gives when it is washed.
I have made all the 4-patches,
put on all the hearts with fusible web
and cut all the batting.
I will use 4 different light prints on the back,
so the back will be a little interesting too.
I have free hand appliqued 2 hearts by machine now, through all layers -
14 more to go.
I can see the blocks will do good with some free motion quilting as well.
Update to follow, hopefully later today......... :o)
