We had a couple of months to collect 9 co-ordinating fat quarters and that is all we were told. I chose some Japanese inspired fabrics that I had admired more than once on a display quilt at Quiltessentials and Claudia helped me gather my requirements. We were due to start in February but I was away in the UK at this time so I missed the first month and started in March instead.
To start with, we needed to cut the fat quarters up into various squares, rectangles and triangles...... "oh dear, did someone say triangles!" Here are my squares/rectangles laid out on the cutting diagram. I am not cutting the triangle bits until I get my pattern each month because I just imagine the chaos all those triangles will cause. I did all this at our group session but I will be catching up by sewing the blocks as homework.
Slow and steady wins the race? Oh yes, my triangles sewed together beautifully and I was ecstatic that I did not have to unpick any triangle units. I did have to unpick a row that I somehow turned upside down but all in all, it went together so well. Lovely matching seams and sharp points.
Today I am linking in to the March NewFO party over at Cat Patches
I will return to blogging about my UK trip in a couple of days.
