New Project

A few weeks ago, I saw this pattern by Lizzie Be Cre8ive Designs at Gina's.  So, I picked it up thinking this would be a perfect hand work piece - simple and fun.
 It's called Piece, Love & Applique.  The hardest challenge I have found is picking the fabrics for the feel I want.  After visiting a few fabric shops and even picking out 2 different "focus" fabrics, I decided on using the tones and colors in this piece (which will be used for a few of the blocks as well):
I have all my fabrics to get started now and I piece my first section - this pattern is done by months, was a BOM program.

I'm working on the applique now and hope to finish it in the evenings over the next week.

  9. I haven't seen this pattern before but have some others of LizB. Took a class with them one time and it was so much fun and I learned quite a bit when I was just starting applique.

  10. I really like the idea of choosing a focus fabric to guide your other fabric choices in the quilt. Very smart! The fabrics you've chosen so far look perfect. I can't wait to see more! :)
