This is turning out to be quite a crazy week. I sat down and realized I had nothing done to blog about this week, it seems I’m in the “middle” of several different projects and just don’t have anything finished! I did finish my t-shirt from my “selfish” sewing a few weeks ago, I just need to photograph it on, which means I need to actually put on make up– a difficult task in the Summer.
Since I’m “in between” a few things, I thought I’d sit down and tell you about a quilt that I’ve got in progress right now that I’m very excited about!
After I posted the finished pictures of my Guest room MANY of you asked if I was going to show you how to make the block on that vintage quilt that I bought to go in the room. Well the answer is YES! I bought the quilt thinking it was a great block to try to redo. I don’t think it has a name… am I wrong about that? Anyone recognize it?
Well I sat down and got to work and after several tries I’ve got it down!
and I must say that I’m very excited about the direction it’s headed! It’s a fun little block to make but does take a bit of cutting. I’ve decided to make it into a quilt for my daughters bedroom. She’s been asking for a quilt for a long time for her bed and I think the pinks and aqua’s will be perfect in there.
I pulled out a collection of fabrics to use and have been busy planning out all of my blocks. Since this quilt does require a bit of math and several steps, I’ll be releasing it as a pattern later this summer.
and.. did you notice?…I cut up some of that Heather Ross VW Buses print… SHOCKER!!
