In my blog post I thought I would take your through my brain process in how I created an original block.
For me this project started with wanting to do something patriotic. I went to the Graphics Fairy website and found a wonderful vintage Fourth of July image and decided that would be the core element in my yet to be designed quilt.
While this is a lovely image, it isn't actually an easy one to work with. In my tutorial this week, I will share will you cropping and resizing the image (so it can be printed on EQ Printable fabric) and then my thoughts on designing a block that used the image plus would be very easy to piece.
Next week, I will share with you how I created a quilt (or two) with an "interesting" sized block.
