Aiming for Accuracy……I can’t wait!!!!
I’m not one to let a good project slip by, so I’m joining with Michele over at the Quilting Gallery to brush up on a few skills. I can’t wait!!! Over the next 16 weeks, quite a few bloggers from all over the globe are getting together and learning – slash – revising – slash – re-learning the skills of accuracy…..accurate cutting and sewing, and the finished result will be this beauty…… The quilt finishes at 58″ x 82″ and contains 30 blocks and a few single units. I can’t wait…..and I figure, being designed by Michele for an advanced beginner I should be able to manage it. These are the fabrics I’ve chosen to complete my quilt… A little bit scrappy and a little bit country….I’ve ordered some chocolate brown for the contrast and sashings…..I can’t wait! I’m really looking forward to each of the weekly lessons…there are sooo many of us joining in, and it’s not too late if you want to too! Everyone can join the quilt-along and the lessons/tutorials will be available for free until October 31st. Michele will be creating a booklet with all of the lessons for sale at the end of the 16 weeks. I’m going to make sure I keep up…..I like the accountability factor! In fact , I NEED the accountability factor! So why not join us too…..head on over the Michele’s blog and let her know, print off the info, add the button to your sidebar and choose your fabrics…..(you might even like to use it as an excuse to buy some new fabric????? hee hee) We’re going to have LOADS of fun……and have I told you??? I CAN’T WAIT!!!!! Sugary hugs xox :o)
