Marit's Blog I came across the Process Pledge. The idea is that those of us who blog about our quilts (and other crafts) should make a pledge to share more about our thoughts and the process of designing and making our quilts. I decided to join in as I always love to read about other stitchers creation processes and it will hopefully prove motivating for me as well perhaps being interesting/useful for any other crafters out there.
I am just about to start a new quilt which is to be for my son and his partner. I have found a pattern called 'In the Pink' which is being offered as a block of the month by Esther Aliu and which features both piecing and applique. I have been given a free reign to create this quilt as regards pattern but they would like it to feature 'peacock' colours so I will have to change the colours in the pattern. I would also like to try and use fabrics from my stash rather than buying new ones (that will be a first if it happens!). At the moment I am trying to decide on the colours and the applique method but I probably won't actually start sewing until after we move. I'm itching to get started though ............perhaps I will find time to at least select the fabrics.................
