Mischief (and adorable fabric) in the Studio
This is one of those dreaded “I can only show a peek” posts. Unavoidable, sometimes, but I do try.
I’m working on a quilt for Kelly Lee-Creel. Her adorable “Storybook Lane” line from Andover will debut at Market. She calls the quilt pattern “Falling Stars” and it’s a variation of tumbling blocks with a method that allows machine piecing. Oh, yes it does!!
The trick is to be organized. Okay, it’s not a trick ~ it’s an absolute MUST. LOTS of cutting and labeling and stacking and pairing and sewing and labeling and cutting and ….You get the idea. But if you like that kind of thing (and I really do) you’ll love this. This little pad of stickies-that-don’t came in really handy for building the strip sets, which is great since they were pretty much useless for notes.
For a look at the whole collection (including some amazing panels for creating houses and storybook characters), scoot on over to the Andover website or click on one of the links above for Kelly’s blog (everkelly.com). And then put a fresh blade in your rotary cutter!
Expect another peek or two through the weekend as this comes together ~ it has to be in Kansas City by 5/14!
