As soon as I saw this new line of fabric I fell in love. This is First Romance by Kristyne Czepuryk of Pretty by Hand, made for Moda. Isn't it just the sweetest? Now comes the hard part...cutting away the plastic and removing the ribbon.
It took a little time I finally did it...And OH MY GOODNESS! My knees went weak and my heart began to flutter. Two hours later I came to my senses and chose a few little lovelies for my next quilt. Before this line was released for sale I started designing quilts just for this bundle. About 20 quilts were designed but only four made the cut. And from that four I plan to make at two. Both are quick and easy quilts with large blocks.
So the process began. Below is my fat quarters drying after being starched. The starching process is very simple.... a Rubbermaid kitchen container with liquid starch. I refold the fabric to fit the container, lay all my fat quarters in the container and pour the starch mixture in. After the fabric absorbs the starch I carefully squeeze out the excess. Then hang on my frame with a fan and space heater blowing on them. When almost dry(about 45 minutes later) I start pressing each piece. The pressing(not ironing) while still damp helps to preshrink the fabric.
A few hours later I'm well on my way to having a quilt top made.
I couldn't help myself....I added a little Lakehouse Drygoods(green) to the mix.
Hope to see you in a few days with a completed quilt!
