Heather Bailey Fabric Quilt Using a Framed Block Pattern - Part One
So in the following days I returned to the Etsy page showing photos of that particular quilt again and again. I added that page to my favorites and started planning how I might be able to actually make a similar quilt. I managed to find and order the material at Heather Bailey's website. Here is the link for those who are interested in looking at her wonderful fabrics. http://www.heatherbaileystore.com/
Next I started looking for "framed block patterns" on the internet and found some that I could modify to make the quilt I wanted. I was most worried about cutting the pieces correctly and sewing them together in a consistant manner so that everything look right and even. Thats when I discovered cutting mats & rulers, rotary cutters and a 1/4" sewing foot. Suddenly making this quilt seemed so much easier.
The quilting world has advanced and there are so many cool tools to help you find your way!
