This is my new quilt at the designing stages.
When I did my class with Lynette Anderson a few weeks ago I was inspired. I learnt newish techniques or better techniques for what I love to do. I am always drawing and doodling. As you know I have put up a few free stitchery designs at different times.
I felt challenged in myself to create my own Christmas quilt design using Lynette's new fabrics for Christmas called Christmas Fun fabrics. The hurdle I was finding hard to jump over was that these are fabrics designed by a designer and she uses them in her own designs. I could not get my head around trying to do something of my own with her fabrics. Lynette mentioned in class that she had come across someone in blogland that had created a tablerunner using Lynette's fabrics.. it was like a light went on in my head and I thought.... I am going to give this ago.
So I came home and got drawing.
The above stitchery blocks is what I have come up with.... I am thinking of doing a log cabin type of block for each stitchery. I have had so much fun doing the applique and stitching.
Writing the pattern is the hard part!
Have a good weekend
