I did some more work on my Jamestown Landing quilt (from String Fling: Scrappy, Happy and Loving It!). I finally have all my HST's sewn into broken dish blocks. There are 210 there. Phew. I have 67 string blocks there and I need 156. That's going to be my next goal. We are moving into a new place in the next couple months and I really want this ready for our new bedroom. I feel like I am over the hump. I really love how this is coming out. It has a combination of scraps and specially bought fabrics in it. I didn't have enough blue and creams so I had to get some more. I threw in a jelly roll of Indigo Crossing by Moda. Every strip is represented somewhere. I LOVED that jelly roll. It matched perfectly. I also bought a fat quarter of every neutral and blue I could find on Connecting threads. Don't you just love that store? Then mix all that in with my scraps and I think I ended up with a great mix.
I promised myself I wouldn't start any new projects this month but here it is, July 3rd, and I have one in the works. But for a good reason! My Aunt and Uncle are becoming foster parents to a beautiful little 10 month old girl. She is painting a room for her in the colors of pink and brown. So obviously I had to do something for her. :) These are the fabrics I pulled. I am torn between doing something easy and quick and something more intricate. I have never been one for the quick and easy quilts.
This is a sneak peek of a finish I am going to show you on Friday! This is the very first time I have ever quilted something with just straight lines!
This week I am linking up to Freshly Pieced and Esther's blog.
Can't wait to see what your blocks look like when they are all put together.ReplyDelete
