TRIMMING

I trimmed the motifs apart for the SteamPunk quilt blocks.  I could use plain fabric between the blocks or I could buy some coordinating fabric from this line.  I will think about it for a while.
I did dig right in to putting the grey triangles onto two opposite corners of the charm pieces to start off the Mini Petals quilt.
And the hard part for the panel has been done--
trimming it to the right dimensions 
so that you can surround it with blocks that will fit!
  In this case, it is 42 1/2" by 24 1/2 " because both numbers can be divided by 2, 3, 4 and 6 to give me
 a good variety of block choices!

  2. The panel almost looks like one of your little water colour paintings

  3. Trimming is scary. I am terrible at quilting math. I never get it right. I would rather steek a sweater than try to figure out the size to cut fabric for a quilt. That's why I usually stick to other people's patterns and let them do the work for me.

  6. That panel brought back fun memories of a family gathering at a beach house in California. There were even chairs like these. It will be fun to see this finished quilt! Did you make those motifs?
