Ok everyone, you have to see the new Riley Blake FARM FRESH fabrics in the store, it is just too cute. I wanted to do a quilt in it and so this is what I created. What do you think? I just bought a yard of the brown polka dot and a yard and a quarter of the back ...which was a tan flannel. ( Flannel shrinks that is why you have to buy a little more and pre-wash and dry it first). Then I sandwiched the whole thing together. Next I cut 5 1/2 inch strips and 3 1/2 strips and placed them where I wanted them, sewed them down through all the layers at a quarter of an inch from the edge ( so I could get a little bit of the ragged look). Then added rick rack, and by the time you sewed on all your strips and rick rack, your quilt is already quilted and ready to add a binding on. Can you believe it is that quick, I love it!
Hope you have a chance to go see and maybe get some of this darling fabric.
I love creating new things, don't you?
