I bought these rulers design by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts fame
a while ago. I have watched her marvellous and
interesting designs pop up all over social media and have thought they
were not for me - that they would be to complicated.
Then someone made me sing up with the Fat Quarter Shop's BOM
for Park Bench. I had been reluctant for 2 reasons - the rulers and the fabric.
I wasn't convinced that I loved, let alone liked Botanics (I know there are
quilters gasping at this confession) and didn't want to spend money
when there was doubt.
Well I caved. I signed up - I figured I had the rulers and I
really should used them. I thought the BOM was
probably the safest bet and decided while I was home
with sick kids to get stuck into it.
It was not at all what I had thought!
I was super easy and fun too.
The fabric - well there are prints in it I really like
and think I will buy more of -
especially the sketches on the graph paper.
Now I have to wait for month 2 to arrive...
