Tennessee waltz Quilt


I was thinking I'd try to do a traditional quilt. I don't usually do those. I can't recall if I have ever made a traditional quilt, in traditional colors. It's a bit out of my wheelhouse.

But, this is new for me. So I did some mock-ups of some color ideas I liked. I went to designs to find the beautiful color palettes.

As you can see, it's a tennessee waltz pattern. I did some color mock-ups in Illustrator, and yes there is a way to register all the edges and make it look nice, but I didn't feel like taking the time to do that, because my daughter was eating paper, and it took some time to fish-hook the wet papery gob out of her mouth before she gagged....again.

Hmn, now that I'm looking at them all together they are all pretty boring. That must be why I don't do to many traditional quilts.

That's ok. I am doing so many tutu's for the nutcracker, that I don't really have the time to do this. At least I didn't buy the fabric and begin it, leaving it an unfinished project mucking up my sewing area. 

I've got tulle to gather, and boning to sew into bodices.

I'll have to show you guys a peek next time I blog. Ha ha, who knows when that will be?
