I was so excited to be part of this blog hop and get some more NEW dies!
My DIE to show you is the flowering snowball
it’s 12” finished, the die is HUGE
I chose to make a quilt out of Island batiks “sprinkles”
and I came up with this design in EQ7
cutting out the pieces took one afternoon, if even THAT long.
since it’s curved piecing, I pinned them a lot and matched up the notches in the middle, which is a GREAT feature of the Go! dies…
Then I pretty much sewed the blocks together like a nine patch.
Here’s the blocks all ironed
and laid out on my design wall
Blocks sewn together and border added ( the same yellow as the center of the blocks)
I used a dotted multi colored fabric for the binding, it’s just FUN!
And Voila, the quilt is quilted and bound!
I think it took 2 days and one evening to sew the binding on by hand.
Sure wouldn’t be this fast if I hand cut all those pieces!
the backing was a scrappy purple from my stash
I embroidered a flower for the label and named it
