Ready to start


OK – I’ve decided to freehand quilt this quilt – I hope I don’t regret it. I don’t know why I’m stressing over this maybe because I’ll actually be showing the outcome on the blog. So be nice to me – this is why I don’t quilt for other people except family members and they get what they pay for.

I’m going to use the variegated thread and I’ll start with the square in a square blocks. I played around with different variations and this is the one I’m going to try. Can you tell I can’t draw. I printed a bunch of blank blocks off EQ5 and drew different patterns until I came up with one I like.

I’m still not sure what I’ll do in the 4 patch blocks but I’m leaning toward some loops and butterflies in the final border.

I printed a butterfly motif off of the McCalls site and I can trace it on template plastic and just use the outline on the top so I can place the butterflies where I want them. I’ll just do loops in between the butterflies.
