I decided to use my There's a Square in There pattern, but this time pair them with a black background. I was really nervous because I've never used black before, especially not big chunks of solid black. But I needn't have worried, I think the black's a striking contast to Julia's beautiful fabrics (although I found the black difficult to photograph without washing out the other colours) . I felt so grown up working with these fabrics!
It was nice using a pattern this time, rather than writing a new one- much faster - especially since it was one of my 'stack and slash' ones.
So, now I'm trying to decide whether to quilt it like my last one, with the double hand quilted squares, or whether to follow the design and quilt around each fabric square. The double quilted squares were a pain in the butt to do, but look really effective.
Speaking of writing new patterns, I have a couple of quilt patterns almost ready for release. It's quite a process writing a new pattern and I would appreciate a fresh set of eyes .
Is anyone interested in proof reading a pattern for me? Thanks for the great response - I think I have enough now!
