The new quilt
Remember way back in August when I started planning my next quilt? I've been wanting to make a quilt based on the Summer Sunset gradient (currently out of stock) for a long time and I've had Vector Quilts Mardi Gras pattern set aside for it for at least 2 years. Well, it's time has come!
TI do love foundation piecing a lot. I started working on this 2 weeks ago and I now have one star point done. This is pieced on leave-in foundation fabric. I haven't decided if I love it yet but I know I will love not having to remove a lot of papers!
For some brilliant reason, when I bought the pattern I thought it was a good idea to also buy the miniature version. What was I thinking?
Well, there are a lot of scrap fabrics from this quilt so why not.....
My plans for the weekend are to bind 2 veterans quilts, quilt more on the vintage flowers quilt and to work on another set of these blocks. I think I'll do them 4 at a time to try to keep my interest up.
I hope you have a great weekend. Mine will be peachy because I won't be watching any news!

The part I hate about pping is tearing off the paper too. This is going to be another spectacular quilt Vicki. Will you be keeping this one?

I am not crazy about tearing off the papers either. What version/brand of foundation fabric are you using?

Oh wow! This is going to be a spectacular quilt! Simply can't imagine also doing the miniature version though.

The first word that came to mind for this quilt was 'spectacular', and I see that others have used this word too! It will be a stunner. The colors are great. And the mini - wow. You have a lot of patience.

That foundation pieced quilt is going to be something else! I will be interested to see how this section fits into the rest of the quilt since I have no idea what it is suppose to look like. You sure have more patience than anyone I know to piece together something like this. It is going to be fabulous especially with your hand dyes!
