My new start Tuella and Friends

Some surprising news has given me the inspiration for my next handwork project. This Tuella and Friends appliqué quilt should be a sweet addition to a little girl's room.



I have been planning on making this quilt for awhile but have been stuck because I could not find an outer border fabric I like but since it needs to be finished quickly I decided to just jump in. I have been prepping blocks for 3 days and my sewing room is a disaster!



Since I am going in a different color direction than the pattern, I started by making all the background blocks and sashing areas first. Hopefully this way my colors will end up pretty balanced. Here are a few blocks prepped on my design wall.



And a few blocks sewn and embroidered.






Such fun and a perfect project to work on until the next part of LE is released.

Cute pattern, and smart way you've approached it. I need to try that with one of my projects--I'm afraid it is going to end up rather hodge podged since I didn't look at the whole picture to start with.
