Are you ready for the Braided memories quilt-a-long?
Well I am looking forward to it. :D
My Recollection line is arriving to the shops and I wanted to celebrate that with you.
For that occasion, I prepared a nice braided block-that can be done with strips (and scraps;) and you can download and print it HERE
This is the mirror image of what you will be getting on the back of the paper.
I always wanted to learn the paper piecing and I think that this block can be nice for the start.
I also think that it can be created with traditional piecing as well, so that will be my plan B ;) Recollection fabrics and matching Pure elements-solids can make nice fabric creations, appropriate for upcoming Holidays gift-givings.
I divided the block in 4 printable sheets in order to obtain one big block that can be used as it is for cushions, but can be also used with other additional blocks to make a quilt or table runner. The numbers on the block are showing the piecing order and the letters are showing the fabric placement.
I 've found this great tutorial on You tube, for those that, like me, are beginners.
Here are the fabrics I will be using (look at the block on the first picture of this post):
fabric A: pure element "coral reef"
fabric B: pure element "snow white"
fabric C: pure element "mirage blue"
fabric D: pure element "nocturnal"
fabric E: Fairisle Hearts greige
fabric F: Bullion fronds rose
fabric G: Flowered engrams ornate
fabric H: Kilim Inherit shadow
fabric I: Cuneiform script aged
fabric J: Laced remains haze
And here are the versions of the block in second colorway of the Recollection fabrics and in 2 variations in Indelible fabrics.
Here are some quilt mock-ups.....
Well, I hope that you feel inspired and that you are willing to join me on Instagram with your projects......just use the hash tag: #braidedmemoriesHappy sewing!
