My best quilting buddy and co-pilot for shop hops "Judi" had her mom pick up block kits for design a quilt block contest for their county fair - she lives one county over from me; all 10 or 12 participants will receive the same fabric - I measured and it's 3 fat eighths in blue tan and cream - reminds me of the civil war fabrics. Keep in mind I have never designed my own block from start to finish - block has to be 12-1/2" unfinished square. Something original - original I'm not; something creative - creative I'm not; how am I ever going to get my block designed and put together. DING DING DING - I scanned my fabrics into my computer and printed off half dozen sheets of each fabric -
I love to cut and paste - I can get pretty creative with paper scissors and glue - I designed a paper quilt block - now I have to transfer the pieces to fabric. I snap photos of my progress and post later.
