A New Year and a New Quilt!

How else does a quilter begin a new year other than start a new project!

I have been working hard to finish "Deb's Not Quite Telling the Truth Applique Quilt (for beginners)" and sewed the final stitches last night so am now rewarding myself by starting "Phebe". Never mind that behind the cupboard door you will find any number of UFOs!

I have chosen one of the French General Rounneries range for the background and then spent a pleasant morning going through my stash and auditioning fabrics. What do you think?




Now the real the fun begins and I can't wait to start the centre medallion. But first all the preparation: tracing the design, cutting the templates and checking the colour placement.

Who knows how long it will take to finish but I promise to post regular progress reports.
Until next time,
Meghan
PS. I will upload some photos of DNQTTT after our next sewing day. It is soooooooo big I cannot take any decent pictures without help.

  1. Fabulous Meghan. I'm starting Phebe too but had a seniors moment. Was waiting for the centre fabric to arrive (gee this is taking a long time) and then realised I hadn't actually ordered it - der! See you soon.
