Finally a start....

Over the past few nights I had my trusty rotary cutter working flat out. I have finally decided what fabric's to put where and labeled them all ready to go.

I have decided to go with the needle turn applique technique.
I started with the patty cakes.....


Next I completed the umbrella....


I'm really enjoying watching everyone's progress on this quilt

Until Next Time - Happy Stitching xox

Kris said...

yes it is a lot of cutting to start with, but you have to really to get your fabrics spread throughout the quilt I think. Anyway, organised is more fun!

Oh yes, looking very organised there :) Once all that cutting is done it comes together quickly- and then It's more of a challenge to stop stitching!
