jill here...A brand new book sample is close to completion. This Blend collection is a perfect gender neutral baby combination. Polar bears and penguins, oh my!
|I had 3 fairly large pieces of a similar taupe to get my backing started.|
I left the selvages intact and turned to the outside.
The majority of the piecing will be central to the back.
|Small rectangles, leftover strips, a fat quarter and some yardage |
from my stash will be featured.
|The prints were sewn between the white backgrounds|
that were made the same width.
|Here are the leftover strips pieced .|
|I checked my widths and trimmed to keep|
them straight and square.
|Trying different arrangements for better balance...|
|I'm not usually a pinner but sewing long spans|
helps those measurements to merge equally.
|My big board helps keep those edges straight while I pin.|
|A bit odd but lots of fun and different from the usual!|
'till next Tuesday....
