...not that i'm excited or anything :-)
Since i signed up this Bee i've been obsessing about my quilt.
I reall REALLY wanted fussy cut centres but i've never fussy cut any fabric before - because the thought of having a ton of waste just didn't sit very well with my OCD tendencies.
I already had a bit of Pop Garden fabric and was thrilled when this size of print worked (after spending hours and hours on the interweb with my face practically pressed against the monitor - trying to figure out how big the print on various fabrics was!).
I can even get some squares out of the waste and i'm planning on adding a border with these.
Heather Bailey is probably my most favouritist designer.
Her Freshcut fabric was the first set of fabric i bought from the US and I think all in all i single handedly kept her going with the amount of Freshcut i bought. Acres and acres of the stuff.
I was less thrilled with her Pop Garden and Bijoux ranges but you would never have guessed it I still bought enough of it to sink a battleship!
I'm not very good at being able to cut into fabric once i have it so this idea has been the perfect opportunity to chop it all up and put it all to good use.
I would like you all to use the Quiltville Tutorial.
The centres have already been cut for you and I would like you to only use the fabric i have sent. There should be enough but if you run out please give me a shout.
It's entirely up to you what you do with any scraps left (although it probably won't be much). If you have more scraps that you know what to do with and the last thing you need is someone elses, then send them back. If not then feel free to use them for your own or someone elses.
I hope you have fun and if you have any questions then give me a shout on Flickr.
As i'm in the UK i will be putting little packages in the post next week so please let me know on my Flickr thread when they arrive.
