Just last Saturday at the craft fair while having lunch at our bloggers meeting, I was saying to the girls that I would like to make a feather Doona / Duvet cover...so sick of the old one, that's many years old!
Flipped through a few magazines...nothing jumped out at me. Then a light bulb moment...why not a Jane Austen coverlet as a feather doona cover. I love repro quilts and this seemed the perfect choice..
What I worked out to do, to make the diamonds is....cut a 4 1/4 inch strip.....
Then using my 12" square ruler and the 60 degree line on my ruler, line it up to cross cut the diamonds...
After I sew the diamonds and sashing into strips I will join them together with long strips of sashing..
I'm using up my rose / floral fabrics for a soft scrappy romantic look.
Well that's my thinking and idea on how I'll go about it.....lets hope it works!
Isn't it nice to work on something different....with a bit of a challenge!
Hope your having time to sew today.....♥
