Love at First Stitch, "Oh Snap" Tutorial, and Beach Postcards
I wasn't going to post today, but I just got so excited when I finished this postcard that I had to share!!
The theme for this swap is "Reproduction Fabric Aprons", and I knew as soon as I saw the theme exactly what I wanted to try out. I saw this pattern, by "Charise Creates" at the "Sew Out Loud Quilt Along", and wanted to adapt it to an apron postcard. The only problem is that I had never tried out freezer paper paper piecing before.
I shrank the pattern down, made a few modifications, and started muddling through it. My smile got bigger and bigger with each step, and I am thrilled with how it turned out. It's love at first stitch!! My only problem now is that I don't want to give it away :-). I'll just have to make more!!
Caroline, from Trillium Designs, a talented quilter, seamstress, and fellow Oregonian, agreed to create a PDF pattern for it so that anyone can make it!! You can find it on her blog!! I am super thrilled and excited that she was generous enough to make it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
