O.k. O.k. I live in sunny Florida, so right now it is 68 degrees out and I don't really need to dream of spring, but I just can't help myself. When I found this beautiful floral fabric, I fell in love. It is called Paris Flea Market for Moda . I used one Jelly Roll and one Layer Cake. I found this quilt block design on the Moda Bake Shop... I love this web site! The online recipe is named " Opposites Attract"
I quilted diagonal lines about 1/4 to 1/2 apart to accentuate the diagonal lines on the block. Don't let the simplicity of the quilt design fool you. It took me a total of 30 hours to quilt the diagonal lines.
Hi my name is Brenda and I too am addicted to quilts.I'm new to quilting
and I joined Quilters Club of America to learn from other talented
quilters. I have always enjoyed creating crafts. I am a self-taught
has learned by my mistakes. Typically, I will see something I like and
say, “I can make that”. I have dabbled around with oil painting,
ceramics and pottery, but I have always been interested in quilts and in
the abilities of creative quilters. In March 2012 I decided to take the
plunge. I bought myself a sewing machine and taught myself to sew. I
then read every quilting book and magazine I could get my hands on. In
2012, I made 8 quilts. I gave most of them away as anniversary and
Christmas gifts. I LOVE QUILTING! Seriously, I have never gotten such
satisfaction from a craft before. I have a demanding job, and quilting
is relaxing. I know that at the end of my day,
after everything is quite, I can go to my sewing machine and I
can make something really beautiful and unique.The possibilities are
endless. I can turn what is in
my head into something that is
wonderful...without the messy clean up of oil paint!
