Jody's Mystery Quilt
Since none of Jody's potential students know about my blog, I feel like it is safe to publish some photos.
I got some wonderful help on this one. Carla Barrett showed me some new ideas designedto challenge my abilities. I also got some ideas for some line work from Ronda Beyer.
The batik purple and lime green fabric inspired me to use what I call Carla Barrett signature flowers. But I'm not up for that. I got the stencil made but had an anxiety attack about the octogon shape with the flower so copped out and did Diana Phillips Flower Power.
I also had the chance to use my new Gadget Girls 45 and 60 degree Diamond rulers. I like those rulers. I did some freemo running circles. First time and it was fun to add that accent into the line work. I'll get better as I do it more often.
But I have to say that my favorite part are the sashing and inner border elements that I learned from Carla. Hook, fern leaf and circle. I will use that again. Thank you Carla.
My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
