You start a new project of course!
Last Friday my friend Joan had some magazines, and her folder of inspirations with her. And I saw Something I Wanted to Make. LOL. I resisted all afternoon, and then I caved as I knew I would eventually. Weak willed I am!
I sorted out my 2.5" strips into colours and laid them all out on the ironing board by the time I had to stop to make dinner. Love all those lush colours in the stacks.
I chose to go with a blue/green purple colour scheme as that is what I had most of. By Monday afternoon, I had sewn all the strips into threes. Like so.
See the stack on the right? That middle strip which is actually 2 fabrics, was part of a baby quilt I made for my first grand daughter - she is now 14. 'Bout time it was used. I hadn't made much of a dent in the stacks I was working on though.
Next step was to chop all the strip sets into 6" squares.....
And then they had some triangles sewn on.....
The triangles are cut from a lovely soft palest of pale blue batiks. Hard to see the pattern in real life and impossible in a photo (at least with this photographer).
And this is where I am heading.
And that is pretty much as far as I got, because this gadfly has sprung off into another direction altogether, and started yet another project. But as it is primarily yellow, I shall keep you in suspense until tomorrow when I post my RSC post on my yellow creations. LOL.
Remember I did a post here about all the things my creative friends get up to on a Friday? Well this is Fiona's quilt - all the blocks waiting to be sashed. Today she was putting the final borders on. Isn't this stunning?
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
