This is my entry for week two of Project Quilting.
It measures 30 x 30 inches.
The theme this week was Carolina Lily.
Inspiration didn't come as quick as last week, I was stumped as to what to do. I couldn't decide between an artsy abstract version or a traditional version.
Come Friday I was still undecided. That little block was going to be my best option, but I'd have to redraw it on my own to make it work. Finally inspiration struck.
The First thing I did was redraw the lily block so I could paper piece it. It didn't take as long as I thought it would in EQ7. All I had to do was load the image and trace it. Piece of cake. Then I played around with some layouts. I liked the one on the right with big lilies in the corners, but I knew I was already short on time so I went with the one in the middle.
By Friday evening I had my layout, my paper piecing pattern printed, cut, and fabric pulled, and was starting on my 8 lily blocks.
Since this quilt is only 30 x 30 inches, these Lonestar diamonds started out with 1.5 inch strips.
It was a weekend full of sewing, but was so worth it!
