What’s on the Design Wall

Off Centered Innocence

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We spent pretty much both days watching football and eating chili. A great time as it is really cold outside!

I’m working with Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush this week. Last week I dedicated most of my free time {nap time} to putting together a new pattern in Photoshop. I mocked up some new blocks with off-centered centers, calculated piece sizes, developed cutting layouts and fabric amounts, the whole deal.

My plan is to make this pattern available in my shop. I need to make 30 blocks for this quilt and I have 10 finished so far. I ran out of Kona Snow so I am off to the store tomorrow. I also need batting so I can finish my Good Folks baby quilt. This is what happens when I am out of supplies, I start a new project!

    Looks great! I would never put those fabrics together but then I see them like this and love them! Can’t wait to see more.

    Love your new quilt! I just found your blog and I have to say I love the name. Fresh lemons is a wonderful image, lemons are my favorite design inspiration and smell. I did watch football and eat chili last Saturday, watching my beloved Packers destroy the Falcons. I see you’re from Chicago, so I guess we’ll see what happens on Sunday!!!

      Haha, I was happy the Packers won too because this Sunday will be like the Superbowl for our 2 towns! Go Bears! 😉

    I love the idea of using photoshop to virtually quilt. What a terrific idea.
