I should have called this post--better late than never!!! The assignment for JULY was secondary patterns. I had this design all ready to go and then as happens with everyone--LIFE!!
I started with these gorgeous fat eigths from the Pumpkin Patch collection that were given to me by Island Batik. You will also see some hand dyed wool I had in my stash that coordinate perfectly with this batik collection.
The 1 1/2" die #55470 from AccuQuilt made quick work of cutting all these little squares.
Love these stacks of gorgeous color.....
Spinning all the seams on the back make for a nice flat laying quilt top!!!
Now time to play....should I choose this combination....
....this one might be fun....
....could be a cute baby quilt...but I am going for a table center....
....this is the secondary design I was looking to find!!!
Now for some more fun---add some wool applique shapes using Fall Medely die #55041 from AccuQuilt. This makes such amazingly quick work of cutting this shapes!!
For these Ambassador assignments, I have been challenging myself to use some of the great features on the Bernina 790. Freemotion applique and quilting on the domestic machine uses a different muscle memory than doing it on the long arm quilting machine!! But I persevered and made it through. Not perfect--but a great challenge to myself!!
Extra fat eights from the Pumpkin Patch collection on the back.
Such quilty goodness!! I even changed thread colors 3 times!!
All ready for fall...let the crazy of harvest begin!!
