I picked out the fabrics yesterday. I selected a sky fabric, a star fabric, and a black and white fabric to create the background for my quilt.
A little pressing and then some very careful wavy cutting with the rotary cutter.
I learned how to cut and sew together wavy lines at a mini class that I took at Quilts by Barb's Quilt Retreat a couple years ago. Sorry, I can't explain it, but there are many books out there that give you instructions on how to cut and how to sew it. I just wanted to show you what I was doing to create my quilt.
My background is pressed and ready for tomorrow, when I take a few more minutes for me to create.
Thanks for following along as I take the challenges and create a quilt for Project Quilting. I have til Noon on Sunday to complete my musically inspired quilt. I am sure Mark will love it. You can listen to Mark's "Keep On Dreaming" - just click on the song.
