I decided to work on this cute wall-hanging recently since it is so bright and spring-like. Now that we are finally losing our snow I wanted something bring. The pattern is a free pattern on the Accuquilt site if you want to make one for yourself. I'l post a picture when I get a little further along.
I had green and a blue hand-dyed fabrics that I dyed a couple years ago that I thought would be perfect for the boarders! It seemed like a great excuse to use up some of my fabrics.
I got the top two miters done on the quilt but before I could put the bottom boarder on I wanted to get those stems on so that the edges would be caught in the seam allowance.
I pulled out my Clover bias maker and made some stems from bias fabric. After I have pressed the bias stems I like to wrap them around a tube and pin them down so that they hold their shape. I love this method since it really holds the creases in the bias and prevents them from popping open. I don't do a lot with bias stems but this is what works for me.
So what are you all working on? Spring themed projects or UFO's?
