I ordered the patterns as soon as Fat Quarter Shop got them in stock. The patterns arrived on Thursday (while I was at a 2-day training session for my job-I-get-paid-to-do). I spent last night (while waiting for my daughter to get home from her first “grown up” dance) looking at the patterns and planning my future projects.
Madeline will become a wall hanging for my sewing room. I haven’t chosen the exact fabrics but they will be something to go with the green and yellow room décor.
For Rosettes, I am thinking of using the Moda Glace line by 3 Sisters. The pattern takes a Layer Cake plus yardage for the cream areas, sashing, border, and binding. I think I will follow Nicole’s advice and wait until after I finish the piecing to select the border fabric.
French Kiss is a good possibility for the quilt I want to make Miss Main Street to commemorate the start of her high school career. I am planning a quilt in her high school’s colors, blue and gold, and will give it to her on her first day of school. Shh! It’s a secret!
I better get to work!
