What I'm Doing Now....Recipe Quilt.
Has anyone out there heard of a "Recipe Quilt"...That's what I'm working on now and for the next few months...
My Tuesday's sane quilting group of ladies are each undertaking the making of a recipe quilt...this is how it works..
There are ten of us in this group, each one of us writes down on two separate pieces of paper two quilting "Ingredients"...eg. I may have chosen hearts and flowers...So that's twenty ingredients all up.
All these "Ingredients" go into a box...No one knows what the other persons have chosen for their ingredients.
Then once a month we draw out two ingredients, and we have to start putting together a quilt using these ingredients.
It helps if you have a rough idea of what theme of quilt you would like to make.
I have a rough idea of the type of quilt I will endeavor to make.
I love soft romantic florals...Some of the girls are going for a Japanese theme with beautiful Japanese fabrics.
So far we have drawn out four "ingredients".. Log cabin, trees, flowers and curved seams.
I thought I would start with a central medallion, and work out from there.
This picture is what I have done so far..I'm needle turning the pot and the flowers...This will take care of the "Flower" ingredient, if applique comes up it will take care of that to.
Next I will make some log cabin and tree blocks and see where I can place them.
The curved seam has me stumped a bit...But I guess that is part of the challenge...
