Tutorial, Sea Creatures quilt - part 2 coming soon!
To all my friends who are waiting for the next installment of my tutorial on the Sea Creatures quilt I want to let you know that I have pulled out the fabrics for the quilt top's background using my choice of three printed neutrals for a pieced blocks background;and a second choice using one print neutral for a wholecloth background. The fabrics are shown in the photograph and the border will be the lovely "Nantucket" fabric by South Seas International that I show with it. Bonus: I am busting stash here finally!!! No new fabric will be bought and when the tutorial is finished I will have made two quilt tops, and hopefully started to quilt them too, to add to my studio inventory for the summer tourist season. Part 2 will consist of piecing instructions and how to add the scalloped borders. Hope you will find this project fun to do!
I have what could best be described as eclectic interests ranging from living green to rural community development, but my most passionate interest is in making one of a kind traditionally constructed quilts of all kinds and sizes.
