Ready to Post

Alright ladies, your tardy Canadian is ready to put fabric into the charge of our respective postal services. Hopefully the packages won’t take too long to traverse the border!

Has anyone’s address changed since Sorrel’s and Angie’s?

Here is a picture of the fabric.
The dark square in the lower corner is actually a chocolate brown, and the blackish hue in the Echino print is a raisiny purple.

My grand plan looks something like this, except of course my brain sees it in technicolour.

I will send out actual instructions with little diagrams and everything, to be really clear, but here are the basic hopes and dreams:

1. There will be 15 blocks, each measuring 24″ x 16.5″ including the seam allowance. Of course, you all have to complete only 1.
2. The Echino print is to remain uncut, unless a very small trim is necessitated for ease of work.
3. The natural linen will get textured with small pleats or pin-tucks, running either horizontally or vertically. It should take up the most “square footage” in the block, even if you cut it in two pieces in order to center the Echino. (detailed instructions included in your package)
4. The grey, purple and brown can be pieced however you so desire, but please stick to rectangles or squares.

I really want everyone to have some artistic license, but of course I have a master plan too, so if you’re struck with a brilliant notion that doesn’t match up here, let me know and we can mull it over 🙂

    I got your fabrics today, Bronwen. Super cool project and fabric selections. I’m trying to finish up a big project to give as a gift next weekend, so will need to wait until I finish that to begin working on your block. Should be next week or the week after.

    Great! Take your time. We’re moving into our very own house September 1, so quilting will likely be the furthest thing from my mind 🙂

    Hi Bronwen,
    I was just going to sit down to do make some pin-tucks. I have a 12″x15″ piece of linen, but I’m not sure I understand the direction in your note about making the pin-tucks horizontal. Do you want the seams parallel to the 12″ side, or the 15″ side?
