I love fatquartershop.com. I ordered fabric Saturday afternoon and it was in my mailbox Tuesday afternoon. This is the first time I have ordered from Fat Quarter Shop and I am very pleased. I was worried about my fabric because of the rain, but my order came sealed in a plastic bag!
I opened the package and I loved my fabric choices. The brown and greens are for the family tree quilt and the blue is for my Tradewinds quilt.
I cut right into the brown and started the tree. I cut up my template and placed it on the fabric and cut roughly a quarter inch around it. Then I turned the edges under, pressed, spray basted, and straight stitched it onto the background. I worked in sections and went very slowly. The process took about 3 hours start to finish. I didn't worry about it being perfect because trees are not perfect.
I also started in on the leaves. The leaves were cut using my Cricut and I started wrapping them in fabric and basting them. My husband write out all of the names and I started embroidering.
Here is the quilt this morning with one branch of leaves sewn on. I will add the name leaves after I am finished with all of the background leaves.
Today I was able to sew three buttons onto my Bingo card!
