Creative Bug BOM Trudy.

It’s time to meet the newest and final member of my 2016 contribution to the Creative Bug BOM, Trudy.

She’s fairly simple, but also adventurous and adaptable based on your fabric choices and how you decide to use them.

If you’re in the mood to fussy cut or explore pairings of your favorite fabrics–small and/or large-scale, this is a great way to use the design. I used the same fabric for both circles in the navy and gold versions above, but then I employed 3 fabrics in the pale pink and khaki block.

I liked the idea of using a larger, focal fabric in the center and then a different print to frame it. After completing this pink one, I felt the urge to make a bunch more in similar shades and a mix of prints. I thought (and still think!) it would make a lovely wall hanging or baby quilt.

The gentle outer and inner curves make this block is a perfect place to start if you’re new to needle-turn appliqué, and the various ways to explore fabric make it enticing to anyone familiar or unfamiliar with the technique.

Happy sewing!

    During 2016 I took one of your crafty classes and made a paper pieced wall hanging from your pattern. This fall I finished your paper pieced out house wall hanging in fabrics you designed. Both were small quilts but I learned many new skills and did straight line quilting that I now love doing. Can’t wait to see what patterns and material 2017 you will design!
