I am enjoying watching the Olympics...live. (Today's men's hockey game, USA vs Russia was great! Tied through the sudden death overtime and then went to an incredible shoot out!) I can't take my eyes off the Sochi Olympic graphics because they are all a quilt motif.
It puts one in the mood to quilt! I got up early to get to the Saturday market to buy my produce and then rewarded myself with the rest of the day spent getting borders cut out for one of my designs. Back to work on my version of storm-at-sea.
My original color way was going to entail going with a burgundy border. I have been planning on it for two years...but...
I changed my mind and had just enough fabric to go with the water-toned batik as the border.
Love EQ7. Years ago when I started playing with this design I photographed my fabrics and loaded them into my fabric palette. Today it only took a few seconds to switch around the colors.
Alas...if only cutting were that quick. Many hours later...I finally have everything cut out...I think...
This required some templates made from EQ7...almost takes all the math out of it but not quite.
I did some taping to secure the templates in place while cutting. Worked great!
Not sure when I will get around to sewing the borders because my son and his girlfriend get here tomorrow. I think we will find some fun things to do while they are here.
