the making of ...Cookie Cutter Condos
here. It also made a large number of blocks, and so I find it really fun to find new things to do with them! Each block in this photo has had fusible ironed to the back and trimmed by hand with scissors into these rounded block shapes. I then selected which blocks I wanted to use, and placed them in rows.
this quilt, I have not really used them much and am accumulating quite the collection!
Now, repeat that for each strip.
On to the last steps....I apply a facing to all the outer raw edges and turn them under to the back side. I hand stitch the facing in place. Then I sew a hanging tube and sew it in place (by hand). And, last, I hand craft a label with the quilt's new name and a few other details, and stitch in in place on the back. All done!
And, if you have visited my blog before you will recognize this method of working from several other quilts I have made.
Windows, which won 2nd place in Houston this year!
Park Place, which is touring with IQA in the Tactile Architecture exhibit.
High Rise, which will be heading to Art Quilt Elements 2014 from March 21, 2014 to May 3, 2014 at the Wayne Art Center in Philadelphia!
