Please note NOT suitable for directional fabrics. Another hint - the 'light' fabric can't be BUSY. Here is my example of what NOT to DO.
The Snowman fabric was a bad choice as it was FAR too BUSY. The design of the pattern got lost in the fabric choice.
I also used a directional fabric which you can get away with in the baby size BUT could only use 1/2 of my 1/2 square triangles with the snowman fabric to keep the direction correct - so I saved the others for another quilt. Super huge thanks to Susie Boots for reviewing and testing this pattern!!!
Don't you think so? I recently had an opportunity to spend the day with one of my favorite people, Karen. As I had her for a whole day I set out to find a project that she would enjoy that could be completed in One Day!!
I had recently worked on a Charity Quilt with some friends using our scraps. I hadn't unpacked the leftovers and it just happened to be a happy 'little' container of lovely blue and aqua's that would be just the combination to get Karen's creativity going!
From this stash she picked a large flower (left fabric) as her focus piece and placed it in the large square where it would stand out. Next she grabbed a few coordinating pieces plus a background and set to work.
Here is Karen with the beauty she created!
Fabric selected, cut, pieced, machine quilted, bound, and
hanging pockets in the corners.
ALL done in One Day!!!
Now if only I could apply some of this to my WIPs!! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Sewing Marie
