I am waiting for a chrome yellow to join this group of fabrics I got in the mail today. The background is a really beautiful quality quilters muslin called Emma Louise in vanilla.
Out came the drafting tools, the set is my husband's from high school that he gave me. As you can see this one is going to be pieced not appliqued.
And TAH DAH.. here it is. The picture is out of The Ultimate Quilting Book by Maggie McCormick Gordon that I got for Christmas.
The challenge for me is in working out how to go about setting these compasses because as you see it's not a block format and the large compasses are offset. I'm not sure yet how big this will be, to do it as in the picture or to go a 3x3 setting. This photo shows the quilt on it's side so it's actually a rectangular one. No sizes given in the book.
And yes it's another long term project but I really don't care about numbers of quilts produced, I care more about doing whatever I want.
Here's an in progress shot of the vine quilt just so you know I am moving on it.
