I have finally drawn up a plan for the quilt I am making for my friend Bruce who is fighting bone cancer in America. he is mad keen on the New York Yankees and the Dallas Cowboys so that means five point stars and baseball and football.
I am making 12 paper pieced star blocks - 6 baseball ones and 6 football ones. let me tell you - I am no paper-piecing offianado so these blocks are a challenge but I am getting there. I have all the pieces cut out, labelled and separated into bags. Just the sewing to do.
Once I get all the paper piecing done I will get started on the other blocks I am throwing in. there will be two blocks featuring the Dallas Cowboys helmet and two featuring the NY logo. These are embroidered panels I bought on ebay.
I am also going to do some churn dash blocks and some simple blovks featuring some Dallas Cowboys Fabric. I looked everywhere for some New York Yankees fabric but there was none anywhere except on ebay and that was ridiculously expensive!
I haven't decided what the sashing will be yet nor what the border will be - that can come later!
Till next time.....happy stitching!
