Hi Quilters! I just finished up a big batch of holiday orders -- aprons and place mats. Now that these items are safe in their new homes, it was time for me to get back to some personal projects. I have a lot going on right now! I enjoy thinking up projects and planning things and picking out fabric and cutting fabric so much. Then I tend to lose steam. It's a problem. Anyway, here is a small taste of what I've been up to lately...
I am loving Elizabeth Hartman's new book Modern Patchwork. She is my quilting idol and I want to replicate everything she does. I pre-ordered this book before it was published and received my copy the day it came out! I decided that my first project would be the "Rapid City" quilt.
You know, one of the things I most liked about this quilt was the color scheme. But, for reasons unknown, instead of trying to duplicate it, I decided to pick something completely different. So I'm making my quilt out of The Birds and The Bees by Tula Pink. Which is nice! But it's all starting to look a little matchy-matchy. OH WELL.
Another thing to note is that I did all the cutting for this quilt like 3 months ago? And the cutting is extensive -- there are two full pages of instructions and you need like 40 sandwich bags to organize all the pieces. I thought it was all a little anal retentive at the time, but now that I am starting to assemble the quilt top it is so convenient. ACTION SHOT!
I also made this cute Christmas stocking over the weekend.
I might make more of these -- they are super easy and take less than an hour. Pretty good for a Hanukkah-type lady! L'CHAIM!
I'll be back soon for a new version of PROJECT CHECKLIST! I have sooooo many unfinished items. It's going to be a doozy!
