stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
Now April is upon us, it’s Margarets turn to be Queen Bee at NYC Metro Mod Quilters.
This is my block for her, which I’m duty bound to post on the blog but I cant remember my password. So here it is for you Margaret, hopefully I’ll see you at the next meeting to hand it over in person.
It was such fun to make!
Margaret sent us some fabric strips including the red and white bunting (centre) and foundation papers from a phone book with a placement line drawn on. I’ve never worked on these before!
We were asked to add our own prints to the mix.
Obviously the phone book pages are thinner than copy paper so glide through the machine more easily and my needle will probably stay sharper, longer. I’m not sure about the tearing out later though. They were not as easy to grab and fold, running a pin along the edge helped. I love the bright and scrappy scheme she chose.
