When the going gets tough, I quilt! Seriously. Quilting is a sort of therapy for me (I am certain there is a blog with a similar title). And wha la! I have something to show for all that
Here is Blissful Ballerina! (Thanks for the input with the name.)
Modern Bliss has the softer tones as well as the dramatic brights. The soft tones help to balance the dramatic, saturated tones. I started this Tuesday after work. So it went pretty fast. There is some matching of seams and points when sewing the columns together. That took some pinning and time as I pressed the seams open to prevent knots where the six points come together. I had enough fabric to go 4 rows across and 5 rows down. The ending size is 72" by 84". I wanted something big enough to be a bedspread for the futon in the sewing room. The pattern is Ballerina by Jaybird Quilts. The ruler needed with this pattern is this one by Creative Grids. Looking forward to long arm quilting the hexies on this one!
Happy Friday! Linking up to TGIFF over at Sew Giving this week.
