Let’s Bee Social #177
Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!
So glad to have you join us for the Let’s Bee Social weekly linky party!
It’s been a while since I started a new project by first choosing the backing fabric. This week I dug into the drawer of yardage and found this piece from the Urban Mod collection from Art Gallery Fabrics. Then I chose Spraytime by Makower UK for the background and these Kona solids to match: Ice Frappe, Azure, Pool, Caribbean, Cactus and Lime.
I don’t design very many traditional styled quilt patterns. I do love to make patterns that include animals. But I was drawn in by the combination of the Irish Chain and the the star like block in the center of these blocks. This is called Irish Lullaby and can be found here in my pattern shop.
This design can be made using one colour along with the background, in both a positive or negative setting….
I normally cut and prepare my binding ahead of time. But I’m not sure what I will feel will make the perfect finish yet. I am leaning toward using the backing fabric for binding. Or maybe using the background fabric and one of the green solids in a flanged binding. We shall see!
Now… It’s your turn for Show and Tell!!!
