|I'm working from the center of the quilt out. It wasn't until I was cropping this photo that I realized the faux bois (lighter brown) fabric isn't going in the right direction on half of the triangles! Darn.|
When sewing on the corner pieces, I went back and sewed a second seam 1/2" from the first so the scraps would be fast HSTs:
|First seam corner-to-corner, second seam on the drawn line.|
|These are going to be a nice little second quilt! I'm thinking chevrons.|
This project is really emphasizing how much I need a design wall ASAP! Laying out the blocks in the middle of the floor doesn't work when there are small people or animals loose.
I also received some more birthday fabric this week:
|Neutral scrap pack from Fabric Worm--I requested greys and/or dark fabrics.|
|Cool scrap pack from Hawthorne Threads.|
|Ghost Wing in aqua. Ohhh man I can't wait to do something with this! I have been resisting the urge to buy it for a while...and now I'm pretty sure I need some in the grey as well.|
|Tossed Ovals in scarlet and David Walker bears. David Walker also has some really cute birds, I hope I can find them in stock somewhere!|
|Jay-Cyn Urchin Shells (really want those in grey too!), and Stof Raindrops in white and navy.|
|My pile of Birthday Fabric! Yay!|
I am one happy quilter! A new, shiny room, a new pile of fabric, a new quilt pattern! And new thread from a giveaway (which I'll show you in my next post)!
