|Nope--nothing new here....|
But,I was so taken with the Devil's Claw quilt on the cover of my new Country Threads book, I had to do some fabric cutting!
|I thought my stash of Kim Diehl fabrics would be perfect for Devil's Claw.|
I am making mine a bit larger than the pattern in the book, so I needed 21 dark prints and 21 light prints.
|I was a little short on Kim Diehl lights, but it was easy (and super fast) to order a bundle of her Butter Churn Basics (all lights!) from the Fat Quarter Shop!|
|I made a few test blocks. They are very labor intensive--lots of waste triangles!|
I think I am "square in a square" challenged. but I love how the blocks are looking. I'm also a bit worried about setting the blocks together--there will be some challenging matching involved!I know it seems like I am avoiding quilting Words to Live By, and in a way I am. On Friday I will be taking a couple classes from Sue Patten. She will be in the US teaching very close to my home--so exciting! I'm hoping some of her magic will rub off onto me and I will be doing some fabulous quilting next week!
