I started working on the new Emilie Elizabeth using only the new Marcus Fabrics, Judie's Album Quilt, which will be in quilt shops later on this year.
This is an easy block.....really. There are two double flying geese, three four patches, four half square triangles, two rectangles, and one square.
I don't know about you, but for me, I have to work with the fabrics for a bit to see what looks best together and get a "feel" for the them. I could say that I planned the placement of the circle design in the center of my double flying geese, but it was just dumb luck.....I'm not that smart!
I think the twenty baskets that surround the medallion center are going to be beautiful. I want all of the baskets to be different. The only unifying part is the square running down the center.
Starting in January 2015, we will be offering a BOM at In Between Stitches that will be identical to this new quilt, and I think it is going to be gorgeous! I liked the first version of this quilt, but I'm REALLY falling in love with version #2. You will be watching it grow over the next few weeks. I want to have this finished by Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) in mid October, then I will be shipping it off to Quilt Market in Houston for display in the Marcus Fabrics Booth.
I have my work cut out for me. My sister Gail will be helping me beginning today. We will be in full quilting mode for days......do I hear weeks?
