Ann Laurer designed Fire And Ice and was published in Fons and Porters, May/June 2015 of Quilting Quickly.
After doing the small bargello shown in the prior post, I thought I was done with bargello at least for a bit.
A group of ladies from Southern IN get together to sew typically once a month at least in the summer. And Beth saw this pattern and showed it to us. Everyone seemed to like the idea....so it was off to search out the publication. Thanks Jackie for finding them for us.
Then there were those 20 fabrics to find. not 12 or 10 or 15...20 fabrics.
Now some of our group is talented enough to take those smaller numbers and come out with a beautiful arrangement that captures all the variations that show up in the original pattern... I am not one of those. So with the aide of several very talented ladies at Scrappy Patches Quilt Shop in Brownstown, we found 20 fabrics. Yeah.
The pattern was written very well and I after listening to the others that had already completed their quilt tops I went very slowly through the steps and was very happy not to need to rip any long seams to achieve my goal.
Thanks to the gals for the inspiration, prodding, and encouragement.
Loved it after it was finished. I am even looking at some more complicated designs...just thinking about them for the time being.
