Ice Cream Soda Quilt - Update







I've had a little EPP frenzy this month and have managed to complete 8 Ice cream soda blocks.  It has been nice to have a little slow stitching time in the evenings.  A couple of months ago I succumbed and bought the acrylic templates for these blocks, and a mini rotary cutter.  Oh my goodness, it has made fabric cutting so much easier and quicker for them.

I have now completed 40 blossoms, I have another 32 to go, then all the filler pieces and half blossoms for the edges.  Jodi @ Tales of Cloth finished her Ice Cream Soda Quilt the other day, so this has inspired all of us lagging behind on our quilts.

Have a great week.

  3. Looking fabulous Julie! I love the little rotary cutter too! Do you own a rotating cutting mat? I’m considering putting one on my Christmas list. I think it would help cutting small shapes more quickly.

  8. So pretty. I would have bought them too, anything to help out the speed and you would easily use them for other things too afterwards. x

  13. Pretty blocks - I love the stack on the cake stand! Yeah, that small rotary cutter sure is nice. I would be dying on the curves I'm working right now without one.
