Yes playing with fabric combinations and making tiny little paper pieces for the Hertfordshire Quilt. I decided that for the time being I will do this quilt the English Paper Piecing method for accuracy – it doesn’t matter if it takes two years or more to make it – I have plenty of quilting to catch up on and a ton of projects to make.
I have the first 9 little squares drawn and cut out and ready to start whenever I get ready. The first nine pieces will be from the jelly roll I showed last week – The jelly roll is from Betsy Chutchian and it is called “Rachel Remembered 1820-1850” appropriate eras of fabric
The book gives great diagrams although tiny – all measurements of all finished units are provided too so you know you are on track for perfection – not something I always aim for but when you have a quilt with this many pieces it will help it all go together right. Just so you know – if you are making this quilt or have the book you might want to note that two pieces are not labeled correctly – someone that is making the quilt let me know and I am letting you know – A2 should be A3 and A3 should be A2- got it? this is a Quiltmania book and it is written in French and English.
I rolled Murrieta Stars down on Wednesday night and the last row of the stars is now in view – there are a couple wide borders left yet that you can’t see but I was surprised to see the first one in sight. Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Busy Hands Quilts and Crazy Mom Quilts.
It is going quickly with the big stitch quilting
