2. Changing the blade on your rotary cutter - I'm in love again!
3. Changing the needle on your machine - like wise
I started cutting 5 inch squares for the 65 Roses project on Wednesday and found I just couldn't stop. The guidelines called for "fresh spring coloured florals or prints with a vintage/romantic feel."
As much as I love modern, bold prints I am really a sucker for vintage/romantic prints so I had plenty to choose from in my stash. I ended up putting together three blocks for the charity quilt and liked them so much I decided to make a smallish quilt for myself.
Enter the chain piecing. How had I forgotten about this wonderful technique??? I put together all 36 squares for my quilt top in an evening. I made a trip to my local fabric warehouse today to get some cotton batting, binding and homespun for the backing and border and I'm sooooo itching to get this quilt finished.
