I told my daughter about my new blog – a place for constructive feedback rather than our standard ‘nice quilt’. She said, “The internet is a dark and scary place. You may want to leave the quilters alone. A place for niceness is not a bad thing.” 🙂
This is a new design I’ve been working on. It will be a twin size bed quilt for my niece, Ellie.
Here are the things I’ve learned from this effort:
1) I love working with flannel.
2) Flannel from Joann’s has washed up wonderfully and feels thick and soft. (They had a fabulous flannel sale on Black Friday – 75% off! I got a lot of fabric for $1.75/yard. Just sayin’.)
3) I like designs with only a few different fabrics so I should have bought more yardage of each fabric in order to make a twin size quilt.
4) It’s more time consuming to cut out a quilt with wavy lines than one with straight lines.
I will have a steep curve learning to post ‘how-to’ photos, but here goes.
