A touch of Modern {quilting}

Wednesday, 7 November 2012

I have finally had time to start on the roundabout of Baby MiH's Moses basket - it is amazing how my job did get in the way of preparing for crafting! It is great to be able to make progress with so many projects at the same time... 

**Don't forget to enter my giveaway - open until Friday evening**

Over the weekend, I toyed with several designs for the roundabout, which is basically a very long rectangular piece - and have the final design approved by Mr MiH over the weekend. He calls it a ribbed design - and I suppose it is. The basic design is made up of three strips of fabric (the solid is Moda Grunge, Sugar Cookies, and the blue design is part of the Maya collection by Leah Duncan).

I cut out strips of 3 inches. 

And sew them one next to each other making a wave 'ribbed' design. 

The quilting is probably going to be quite basic - stitch in the ditch to reinforce the ribbed effect, and hand stitch to reinforce the wave effect. 

Finally leaving you with a picture of the 70s template... 

Linking up to Freshly Pieced today, to see the other amazing WIPs click here. It is guest hosted by Svetlana today!
