Pictures of fabric are nice, but nothing compares to having the fabric in-hand.
I’m ALWAYS inspired to design with fabric that I can handle, how about you?
That’s why when once I had all the samples for my “Name That Quilt” book made with Odds & Ends fabrics by Julie Comstock for Moda, I was inspired to create this next sample from my scraps.
Once I have the fabrics and start sewing, my brain just starts creating and won’t stop.
By chance I had just enough of the right fabrics to create this.
Daisy Baby Buggy is all pieced, using two fabrics for the buggy, plus a background fabric, then the daisy wheels & handle are appliqued on top.
This kind of piecing always reminds me of building a puzzle.
I lay out the fabric squares on my design floor and start to sew.
Too many big windows in my sewing room for a design wall…
If you chain piece the squares, you’re less likely to get the squares out-of-order while sewing.
Another cute baby quilt don’t you think?
Want to know something else nice about this pattern?
It’s small enough you can easily quilt is yourself.
A great way to practice your machine quilting if you’re not already proficient.
So how about you?
Do you shop for fabric on-line,
or are you like me and want to go out to the quilt shops and see the fabric in person;
visit with a friendly shop owner & have some fun?
I spend plenty of hours at my computer, but not fabric shopping!
Daisy Baby Buggy is available on my website now.
Until next time,
