It took me a while, but finally a post! I'm really happy I could join this blog and eager to get learn from you all!
I spent the weekend making a start on the Beyond the Cherry Trees quilt.
It seemed the most simplest one to start with so I began with Block #2.
Because I'd like this project ready to take to my Bee, and easy to transport, I opted to try pre-basting the leaves, and using Roxanne's glue to hold them. This way I can just grab my needle, thread and snips and get to sewing.
The background is Natural Moda Muslin, and I'm using Modas' Bella solids for the leaves.
This may become a test block as I'm still not sure if the muslin was a good idea to use, but that is what I had in my stash, so in my eagerness to get started, that is what I grabbed.....
Anyone have any experience with this fabric they could share with me?
I love this quilt just as it is, so I may just keep to the colors as they are in the actual quilt, including the faded cream colors. Since I don't have all the fabrics yet, those plans could change....
Here's a picture of of where I am now...the very very beginning...
I'm really looking forward to learning a lot from making this quilt!
