I decided on simple foundation string piecing and I am loving the results....
|strips can be any width...1' -3"....they need to be cut straight|
|I made my foundation piece 15"....draw a pencil line on the diagonal|
|put your first 2 strips right sides together and line them up to the drawn pencil line|
|sew a quarter inch seam allowance|
|press open and continue to sew and flip and press strips|
|careful to extend your strips past the foundation piece|
|flip over and trim using the foundation piece as your trimming guide|
|the finished block is oh so pretty....|
|have fun playing around with block placement....|
|I love to use all sorts of fabric....I put a few solids in this one....I love the contrast it makes|
|did you notice that I got some of the sherbert pips???|
|pink is so nice to play with|
|do you love it??|
|I totally behaved myself with the sherbert pips....just got a few half yard cuts....|
|also found the pixies from alexander henry....doesn't she make you want to make a wish??|
I wish for more time to sew the fun stuff and a lot more money for college and vacations and fabric!!!
I hope to finish this sweet quilt later this week...I will post a pic then....I am making 4 grad quilts for Lily and 3 good friends....it will be fun to post pics of the girls with their finished quilts...I got some sewing to do!!!!
