I took a break from my Michael Miller fabric challenge quilt quilting to work on a charity quilt. I'm doing a Jacob's ladder design using cotton/linen blend. Here's the layout. I like to use Photoshop for quilt design and layout.
I'm in love with these fabrics, Robert Kaufman's Essex collection. They are so great to work with. I began making four patches, which there are a ton of, by cutting strips sewing them together than sub cutting the strips and sewing the cut strips together, very common method. As I was doing the final press on my blocks I noticed that 99% of the seams lined up perfectly. The cotton/linen blend is just amazing. It was a great ego boost to work with these fabrics.
It was a fun break from the wrestling match, also known as quilting on a domestic machine, I was working on.
