I spend a lot of my sewing time making samples for classes, commissions for magazines, patterns for my website etc, and sometimes.......I make something for me.
When I was in Toowoomba in September, with Penny, we went to see Gail Chalker at Sew Creative in Gatton, and I came home with some lovely fabrics. They have been sitting waiting for inspiration. Also, I got the lovely fabrics last month in Melbourne at the Quilt Market.
I wanted to make something fast, but pretty. Here it is - a Rolling Stone, a 15" block. Yes, big!
Join the centre strip, and side strips. I chose a large print for the centre (not amongst my new fabrics, but it worked) It reflects all the colours.
Finished! All in about 30 minutes. You could make the blocks smaller, and use really modern fabrics. Isn't it nice to see one of the old style blocks? When you join these all together, you get a secondary pattern. I did that on EQ, and you get a look like a Album Cross block.
