I am back!!!!
Who would have thought that vestibular nueritis could take so long to heal. I particularly appreciated my physical therapists that specialize in balance/dizzyness issues. They not only had me working on basic balance and visual exercises, but gave me a number of items to work on to simulate some of my skating and ice dancing moves. Although I am not yet at 100%, I am functioning and am very thankful for that.
Back to quilting.
Fall is in the air and I am excited to promote my pattern "Come Said the Wind". The pattern is centered around a poem/old children's song. There are two sizes (both wall hangings). The smallest could also be used as a placemat.
Do you prefer batiks or civil war for fall quilts? I couldn't decide so I needed to do one of each.
The blocks in the quilt are "small" --- but really cute. The maple leaf finishes to 3 inch and the Sycamore leaf to 4-1/4 inch. However, don't be intimidated by the size. There are lots of tips to ensure successful piecing of the project.
I provide instructions for using a number of specialty rulers/tools. These tools are optional. Instructions are also included for the traditional rulers.
Optional Specialty Rulers:
A number of people asked me how I created the center panel (with the poem). Instructions are in the pattern -- but I also wanted to provide a video.
I also have a free handout explaining the technique.
These free pdf files of the verse are also available for Come Said the Wind pattern.
