Inspiration arrives as a packet of material to be delivered.
Inspiration is delivered in many forms and from various sources.
Sometimes it can be delivered while taking my morning walk.
Other times, just brainstorming what I know and love about someone delivers the best inspiration of all.
Of course, the internet is a great source of inspiration.
I was trying to find the perfect quilt design for one of my daughter-in-laws.
As I was brainstorming things that she likes to do, I remembered how much
she likes to work on jigsaw puzzles. I love seeing her and my granddaughter work puzzles together.
So, I searched the internet and located a great tutorial by Rose Smith.
After viewing the tutorial video a few times, I created my pattern.
The pattern required 4 different fabric. One of these fabrics was also used for the borders.
I cut the following:
3.5 inch squares – 32 squares of fabric 1, 28 squares of fabric 2, 29 squares of fabric 3,
8 squares of fabric 4
3.5 x 9.5 inch squares 6 squares of fabric 1, 5 squares of fabric 2, 5 squares of fabric 3
Acquired/Improved Skills: design, piecing, seams, H quilt block, how to calculate amount of fabric needed (Still working on this one!)
Start Date: October 26, 2015
