First up is Jamie, because well...it's Jamie!
(Yes, the kilt did get a bit shorter...artistic license and all LOL)
And of course any Outlander quilt needs a block with both Jamie and Claire, so I decided to go with the wedding night scene:
(I still can't get over how low that dress/corset is...even in the finished gown!)
These are of course, unfinished, un-embellished blocks, simply fused fabric onto a background piece. (I use Pellon 805/Wonder Under) Once I have all the blocks I want to use in a theme quilt complete, I will piece it together then quilt and add embellishments (buttons, embroidery, quotes, etc...) as needed.
In a few days I will post my line drawings of these blocks so you can make you own Outlander theme quilt. If I had the time and was a better blogger, I would probably pull together some kind of quilt-along. But as usual, I'm all over the place and my theme of 2015 is "simplify." So to keep it simple, I will just post the blocks as I make them, and when I think I'm ready to move on, I will post the layout of my finished quilt with a detailed post. You could of course just make mini quilts of any of the blocks you like best.
I think you'll like the new ones I'm working on, but I'm open to suggestions on people or things from the first book to try!
