WIP Wednesday

When I first laid eyes on Petal Pinwheels I immediately fell in love. It is such a bright and whimsical line and it reminds me of springtime and blossoming gardens. Imagine my excitement when it was announced as the fabric line for the 2014 MQG fabric challenge! I was over the moon!!! Then came the tough part. What to do with it?

Seeing as how I love the fabric so much, the easy part was deciding to make something for me. Check. On my “to make” list is a deck quilt for myself. And I had the perfect quilt in mind! While visiting the quilt show in Regina, Sk earlier this month, I had purchased a quick curve ruler and the Metro Rings quilt pattern. Bingo! A match made in fabric heaven!!

So I got to cutting, and sewing, and cutting curves, and more curves…. And even more curves…. I’m pretty good at cutting curves now!

There we go! All ready for assembly!

It turns out that piecing curves is waaaaaay easier with a quarter inch guide on. Who knew?

Eventually I got to the layout stage. I think I’ve sent Jaclyn 17 different photos of different layouts, asking for her opinion. She’s really good at humouring me! You see, I have decided not to completely stick to the pattern with this one. I have a vision for this quilt that I’ll save for the final reveal.

So for now, I’ll continue to trim these blocks…
