Much excitement !!

 

I have started a new BOM which I got from Block Central and

bom2010-quilt

with a few other ladies from my Craft Forum we are going to sew these blocks together …you can read about it here too… It’s called A Sentimental Journey.

Anyway the instructions were for all the blocks but not the finishing instructions so as I have EQ7 to help me design blocks and quilts and just about anything I can do, I put the blocks into EQ7’s program and then added borders with the corner blocks like it is in the picture.

I have also made the quilt to the size of what Block Central said it is.

I also wanted to see what my choice of fabrics would look like in the quilt,

and so I loaded them up into EQ7 after I downloaded them from the Moda website and the ones that weren't listed there on Moda, I scanned and imported them into my fabric library.

I came up with this…

My quilt

I am happy with the fabrics and really happy that I can do this with EQ7 as for me to sit down and colour in a graph paper with it all on just bores me to bits.

I will have some exciting news to tell you all soon…but for now its a secret. But you will love it.

Another fabulous bit of news is that the delivery man came to my door yesterday and gave me a huge parcel.

I was so excited to get this parcel and couldn’t wait to get it inside so I could open it. But first I had to take a piccie of it.

When I opened it I was even more excited as my very own Go! Baby and 3 die sets with their cutting mats were inside!

I got three fabulous dies and I am blown away by these as they are just the biggest dies that I could imagine them to be. I will be playing with these later today and have an idea already…all I could think about when I woke up this morning was what I would make with them.

So Go! Baby…I love you already and cant wait to play with you.

October (3)

Stay tuned for a tutorial and then more excitement! I can’t wait!!

Secrets are to be told ... in your own time! Lol, methinks you tease us readers with little hints.
Vicki I think that some of us will need 'instructions' for the borders for the Sentimental Journey BOM ... makes me wonder why that file wasn't activated.
Enjoy your Go Baby!
