Cutting fabric

I am finally cutting into this little stack of fabric.
These are mostly “Greetings from Canada” by Thimbleberries. (The light blue one second from the left is from my stash.) Mom sent these to me a year ago and I don’t think she quite believed me this summer when I assured her I had a plan for it that just needed to simmer a bit longer.
Here’s the plan:
OK, it doesn’t look like much in the picture :).  Maybe if you click on it to enlarge it you might be able to make out some of it.  I’ve drawn it out a few times to tweak this or that and I’m still not sure it will work the way I want it to.  You’ll just have to be patient right along with me until I get these pieced:IMG_5231

This just goes to show why I’d like to win a copy of the EQ7 software in The Pickledish Patch’s givewaway  It would be so much quicker and easier to design a quilt and I’d get a sneak peek before I actually sew it up!

The giveaway closes on October 27 so you still have time to go over and diminish my chances by entering too (I’ll understand and won’t take it personally, really!)

  1. I can't be sure where your plan is heading, but those fabrics are beautiful. I'm sure you will plan your work to the fullest, and then work your plan! Can't wait to see it! ---"Love"

  2. Yum, those fabrics look good enough to eat! The design (what I could see, anyway) looks really cool. Hurry up and make the first block so we can see!


  3. Is that a lighthouse I see? Keep us posted - it's fun to watch quilts come together! The fabrics are great, too.

  4. I agree with you about drafting quilt designs. I went over to Pickledish and to the EQ site and I can't use it on my computer because I have an Apple. I had been thinking it would be nice to have one, but can't afford to spend the money. Boo Hoo!

  5. These fabrics have great character and I'm looking forward to seeing how they come together. You definitely deserve to win the EQ prize. Good luck! ann :-)
