This month Bonnie and I would like to start by thanking Marina and Daryl Lynn from Quilt Inspirations for featuring some of our quilts on their blog last month. They had a fantastic series on Double Wedding Ring quilts, from the traditional to the contemporary. It was inspiring to see the variety of quilts and the different techniques used to create them. Click here to see more of Quilt Inspiration’s Double Wedding Ring series.
As for what is happening at Fun Easy Designed, we have been playing, experimenting and taking care of business. Bonnie has completed a couple of quilt tops. The first is a free pattern called Lawn Chair Quilts from Moda Bakeshop. It is a good way to use up leftover fabric, something many quilters seem to have upon completing a project.
You can check out the pattern here.
The second is a scrappy triangle quilt, also using up leftovers. All the cuts are made using a 60 degree ruler. Bonnie said that although it was a bit time consuming, she had a lot fun and was very pleased with the results. She felt the instructions for the technique were very thorough and easy to follow.
If you want to give it a try or just learn more about the technique have a look at Magnolia Bay Quilts.
We are also working a a few new patterns. This is a hint of what is in the works.
As for me, I am taking care of business. It is April and that means books, financial statements and tax preparation. Not much fun but someone has to do it. I have also been sewing evening gowns for one of my daughters and am about to put together a bridesmaid gown for another one. Life here is always busy.
I notice the days are getting longer, more time to quilt, so enjoy April and we will update you on our activities again next month.
