I'm coming to the end of the preparation of the samples for the Mexican Tiles Project for our Alamogordo Event.
As I mentioned yesterday I have lots of samples but I try to do new ones each year.
I guess you could say its refining the class.
I drew some patterns onto paper from tiles I had photographed in Mexico on previous visits.
Then I colored them in the computer to audition the colors.
Once I knew what they would look like as a quilt I created the aapplique.
The images were created on fabric and then cut out and placed onto a background fabric.
Now I'm quilting them.
I think it will make a stunning quilt.
Each block takes an hour or so to do… so in reality, it would take a couple of days to create the blocks and then a few days to quilt it (at this size)
