The other day, this message was brought home to me. My husband is not really into much soial media, but the other day hes mentioned that he was looking forward to someone's blog that he reads every Friday. That surprised me, but it showed me that people do indeed look for certain blog posts on certain days of the week.
So starting with this post, I am committing to blog every Monday, thus the name "It's Monday". Now that I have a monthly newsletter and post frequently on Instagram, a weekly post seems just the right frequency to blog.
This is my quilt that I created with a new line of fabric from Riley Blake, designed by Betz White called Juxtaposey. The llamas caught my eye, and I have a certain DIL that loves llamas. I named the quilt " Llama Kisses" and I constructed it with Curvalicious both to make the blocks and to create the scalloped border.
I started out with a plan to make a 9 patch.
I wasn't happy with how it looked so I eliminated a bunch of blocks and made it into a 4 patch.
It looked a little plain to me. Curvalicious to the rescue to create a scalloped border. I find that it's easier to attach the binding to the border after it is quilted and before trimming.
The first step is to mark the border. Any pen will work because it will end up being the cutting line. I like to use one that I can see easily.
To form the corner curve, use a circular template, like a plate or plastic templates in one corner.
I do have a video on YouTube that demonstrates using Curvalicious for binding.

And I created the backing to use up the extra fabric.
