Now back to reality! I figured out the patterns. The first pic is of the baby quilt that I have worked on all week. This quilt has picket fences bordering the center and I figured out how to make them picket posts instead of blunt cut posts. I tried it and I did it!
There are just alot of little blocks to deal with, but the result is worth it. This is a drawing of the baby quilt that I did in Microsoft Publisher. The actual quilt has five picket fence posts instead of three, this is just a representation. And again, I want to thank Quilters World magazine. They always have such pretty quilts. When i get is completely finished, I will post a pic of the actual quilt that I am making.
So this one is called the bride's bouquet. My eldest daughter picked this pattern out of my quilting book. She loves it. She wants to make it with me. I think she picked out the hardest pattern in the book. UGH! How do you make this? Don't know? Neither do I, but this is how I am going to attempt it.
First, I divided the whole pattern in to six inch squares.
Second, I divided those six inch squares into 3 inch squares. Except for the stem of the bouquet, that I left 6 inches.
Third, I divided the squares in the bouquet into triangles. The original pattern from the book had diamonds, but man, my brain is still trying to wrap around those. (Remember, I am a beginner. Still trying to perfect my seams and my measurements.)
Fourth, I added in the small blocks in between the points of the bouquet.
Now, the only problem I am having is figuring out the angle on the stem of the bouquet. Any suggestions? Anyone. (Oh no, I hear crickets chirping!)
Well, as I work on it some more, I will let you all know.
