They sent each of us 3/4 yard of the top fabric
I created this block a few years back at a paper piecing workshop.
I wish I could remember who the guest designer was and give her credit...
so yeah... if you are reading this.... THANK YOU!
I decided to frame the block with 3" red strips
Squared up centered...
eh...decided I wanted to go a different way...
I decided to create an asymmetrical shaped quilt square
Then it was time to make that first cut into the Riley Blake Fabric. It is designed to cut apart & leave 1/4" seams for piecing.
So, once I braved the rotary cutting, I auditioned different designs and tried to imagine what patterns could go "where and in what way".
I just kept auditioning different patterns & borders... until a quilt starting developing.
HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES
I always use rulers and painters tape
to help guide my quilting stitches.
"invisible thread stitch work from behind"
Quilting away the hours on my Babylock Elissimo
looking good... but... It needed more...
decided to square up my quilt with a final frame of asymmetry-
opposite of the first one created earlier in yellow
creating prairie points by cutting apart rows of
after completing quilting, trim & squaring up...
I decided on a few different locations to
add those PRAIRIE POINTS!
I auditioned a few different binding colors
before deciding on solid black...
I machine stitched the binding
on front of quilt using a 1/4" edging foot
I hand stitched the binding to the quilt back
I am fairly pleased with my completed challenge!
