In my last post I shared that I was joining a sewalong to make the Panama Pyramids quilt by Linda from Quilts in the Barn. It's taking place on Facebook, and other quilters' versions are all so different and lovely that I couldn't resist making my own. I purchased the plastic templates from Linda at the Sydney quilt show and since I've been home in Canberra I've been thinking about fabrics and colours.
In the end I decided on Liberty. Between a Liberty club I was in for a year, and my dressmaking scraps, I have accumulated a fair bit of it.
The templates make life so much easier, and not being the most accurate machine piecer in the world, they certainly help out in that department. That's not to say there isn't an element of wonk in my of the blocks I've made so far, though.
Last night I spent the evening cutting out a heap of blocks. Remember that queen sized quilt I entered into the Canberra quilt show? I have exactly 28 days to finish it, and I've prepared some blocks as little rewards for when the applique gets boring, the quilting makes no sense, and I'm sick of putting on another bloody sleeve.
