Week 3 – I continued with the String Strip Block – my scrap pile is dwindling! This week I teamed it up with Project Runway Season 3!!! I went for a more pink/blue/yellow theme this week.
I still have a lot more scraps to go….
Quilt top (not yet fully sewn together) Quilt for my mother who loves turquoise at the moment. Made from Amy Butler Daisy Chain – I was inspired Pressed Flower fabric (centre) which reminded me of a tile – surrounded by some kona solids then more Amy Bulter!! Because of the pattern I could get 2 different “tiles”. I am loving the fabric combination and hoping it is a raining miserable weekend so i can finish it without feeling guilty that i should be doing other stuff!
I recently bought a copy of Patchwork Style: 35 Simple Projects for a Cozy and Colorful Life (Make Good: Crafts + Life) by Suzuko Koseki and have fallen in love with half of the projects and the use of scraps – i wish i could get my hands on some of the fabric she uses!. For my first project i made the fan bag from some black white and red scraps. I am keeping this one for me!
On the weekend I finally finished my hope-to-one-day be sister in law Katie’s 30th birthday quilt. It was the quilt i was doing as part of the oh fransson quilt-a-long. It uses Amy Butler Midwest Moderns and Quilting solids + some dark grey sashing. The back is made up of some of the scraps and two pieces of an early Amy Butler print. I am still not confident to do free motion quilting so I am still just following the lines. I hope she likes it ( it is a month late)
