I have a couple of projects I can’t wait to start…you know, the kind of projects that stay on your mind…things you know will be the perfect combination of print and pattern. But I’ve been doing some cleaning and organizing in my sewing room lately and knew I needed to finish up a couple of things before starting anything else. First up to work on was my “Paper Roses” quilt. It still needs an outer border, but since Bliss won’t be available until fall…the outer border will have to wait.
I’ve decided to use a large aqua print with red flowers for the outer border…and a red polka dot binding.
I also got the outer border put on my “a la mode” quilt…pinwheels again…and I pieced a back for it using some extra layer cake squares and some yardage. I’m not very good at piecing backs as soon as I finish quilt tops, so this was a great finish for me!
And…the final block arrived for the FatQuarterShop’s Mystery Designer Block of the month for 2009. My goal is to set these two quilts together soon…before the first block arrives for the 2010 quilt. I still have some other works in progress…but I think I accomplished enough to start another project or two…and I’ve already started a list of my favorite fabric and patterns that will be showing up at Spring Quilt Market this week! Hope you have a wonderful day and that you get to sew soon!
