    Sewhappy57 in Alaska (Thank you so Much Terry!!) sent over six lovely fat quarters all with a 'creative woman' theme :D Here's how the story evolves.....................


    Chapter One

    I just wanted a quick fix, nothing too difficult as time is of the essence for me at the moment, so searched the web and found this free big blog quilt. :D



    Excuse the ripples, it has been folded up. I did iron it when I finished..honest!!

    Chapter two.......

    Then came the problem what about the backing, I had nothing at all that would do, so I decided what about using all the left overs, if I have a rummage in my stash I might just be able to find enough coordinating fabrics.....

    So this was intended to be the back.........it took twice as long as the front and I think I like this better :D

    So do you think it deserves to be a quilt in it's own right? :lol:

    Looks like the back can be the front and the front can be the back. :lol:

    The back is cute. Isn't funny how a small project grows into a bigger project. :lol:

    I think I will make them into individual quilts, and on the big block quilt I can practice my quilting skills in all those open spaces I was thinking.........

    Now the other one will be a booooger as some of those fabrics are on the diagonal and are abit 'puffy' in the centres ..... :roll:

    You are so right. They need to be two quilts. Love them both.

    Melissa :D

    I think the reason I am not so keen on the big block is the way in which the pattern called for the laying out of the edge pieces to make it look like a border....it's just too solid and I just might end up pulling this apart and making it totally random.....what do you think??

    I see what you mean, I like the way the edges frame the center but it does seem to need something. Random might be the thing!!! :D
