This one started with the fabric.
I loved the panels
But they are blocks... that repeat.. Not just a panel to figure out
But random blocks.
I think I had owned the fabric for more than a year before I even knew where to start.
I started by measuring the blocks and decided to border them. I chose two colors - a deep purple for a thin border and a rich gold for a wider border. And put borders on all the blocks and trimmed them to a uniform size.
Now what? No clue.... so I put them away for a while to think about.
When I came back around to them, I sorted them into piles so I could see what I had - and this is what I did:
I had 9 different pictures - so I made a basic 9-patch into the quilt I am highlighting today. I took the rest and ended up with 2- 3 block wall hangings;
1- 2 block wall hanging and 2 single blocks that will become hot pads.
The 9-patch came together quite easily and I quilted it myself. I did have a spot or two that didn't quite meet (needing some kind of mending)
And I performed my signature "mending" (also known as applique :-)
I crocheted a few gold stars and scattered them randomly over the top of the quilt.... some serving as patches to hide my trouble spots.... and some not :-)
The embellishments look great! And I keep my mouth shut about the little imperfections I just highlighted :-)
Except for here - but you won't tell, will you?
