I can’t leave my sewing machine alone!
Remember the fabric that I bought a couple of weeks ago, Terra Australis by Emma Jean Jansen? I’ve cut it up and started piecing it together. “What,” I hear you say, “are you doing now?” Do you remember the brick work I saw some months ago?
Put the two together…….I’m inspired!!
After mapping out a plan on EQ, I started cutting into the fat quarters.
Folding the fat quarters along the selvedge….
trimming off the selvedges….
then cutting 2.5″ strips along the selvedge….
I cut three sets of strips from each fat quarter….
trimmed the strip ends…..
then cut the strips at 4.5″…..
With 20 far quarters, I cut lots…..
and lots of rectangles!
Then I sorted them into groups of three…..
stitched two of the rectangles together down the long sides….
then the third one across the bottom of the pair…..
One block done!
I couldn’t leave it alone!! Before long all the blocks had been chain pieced together, plain blocks from the gorgeous Waratah fabric cut, and sashings and cornerstones cut too!
She’s going to be a big one! I have three columns together so far and hope to show you a top next week!!
