After turning my first Lily Rosenberry block on its side, the way it will be set, I have decided that it isn't that bad. Perhaps when I finish the others I will decide differently, but for now it is a go.
Being like most quilters, I have more than one project in the works. This is a hand piecing project. The blocks are 3 inch finished. I made my templates out of template plastic and I find if I use my 18m rotary cutter I can cut around them. The pieces are small enough that I can just use the dots to piece them together. This was started with a doll size quilt in mind but after making a few I found out just how fun they are to make, and I may make more but not the 810 blocks that the antique quilt has. They are sooooo cute.:)) I will use a palette of pink and brown one of my favorite combinations.
Until next time.

I appliqued my first Lily Rosenberry Block and I was not pleased with it so I am starting over. My layover slipped and it was not real symmetrical. Not a real good start for 2012.
But I did take advantage of Reproduction Fabrics Superbowl Sale and purchased these fabrics for stash enhancement.
How has your year started?
Until next time
