New Year, New Project

by Nicole

Dear Reader,

I hope the new year is off to a good start for you. I jumped right into the new year with a new project!

I started working on samples for my upcoming class at this year’s QuiltCon: Big and Bold Freezer Paper Quilt Making. In this class, I will teach on how to use freezer paper to create quilts with large, irregular shapes.

The thing I love about this technique is how quickly and easily the quilt top comes together.

After cutting out the templates, it was a breeze to put the top together.

The top came together so quickly that I made another one. This time I reversed the orientation of the pieces.

I recently taught a class on this technique at my local quilt guild. I’ll be back soon to share photos of the class. Until then…

Happy New Year to you, Rosemary!Thank you for the kind words. All is well. Yes, the girls are growing like weeds. I still can’t believe that my youngest wasn’t even 1 year old when I started this blog. She is now almost 8!
We escaped the snow. So thankfully life isn’t on hold for the weather.
I wish you all the best in 2019!

Oh my goodness, I love this! Do you have a class online that shows this technique? Would love to learn!

Thanks for your interest, Kimberly! Yes, there is a video tutorial online. If you google Fresh Quilting TV and Nicole Neblett, it should come up. It’s a fun technique to try. Happy stitching to you!

What a lovely modern design! Those two would make a great double sides quilt… mhhh. Whatever you make with them, it will be beautiful 🙂 xo

Thank you, Melanie! What a great suggestion! I’ll have to tuck that idea away for a future quilt. 😉
