I’m clearly still new at this, so bear with me while I learn all the ropes. But I have so much to share and so many things that I’m working or want to work on. I wake up thinking about what I’m going to sew today! At least I can laugh at myself.
I just want to catch you all up on what I’m currently in the process of working on. I’m participating in a couple of “group” activities. Both are completely new for me and I’m really enjoying the collaboration that comes with so many people working on the same project.
First of all, I’m involved in the Row Robin Quilt Swap hosted by Tab over at Enjoying Life’s Journey. There were so many of us, that we ended up divided into 3 groups. But I really enjoy following all the groups’ progress with their different rows. At this point everyone should have made and sent their own off to the next person, so I think that it may start to get really interesting soon. We’ll see if everyone really does like what other people are making for them 😉 So far, there are some wonderful rows, so I’m sure that it will turn out great! I hemmed and hawed over my row before finally deciding on a double wedding ring pattern.
I really love some of the fabrics in this, especially the little frogs. I’ll be honest, I really love ALL the fabrics in this! It’s always good to make something that you love.
I even made some log cabin blocks. I’ll probably use these on the back now. I was trying to make them for my row, but it just wasn’t working for me. But I really like them now with the wedding ring row.
Then, I decided to join the Mod Sampler quilt along that Oh, Fransson! is hosting on her site. I’ve never done a quilt a long before, so it’s been fascinating to see the same pattern made by SO many people and it looks so different. It’s been a bit of a struggle for me because the pattern is not one that I would normally do. I’ve really debated over the sashing fabric. I’ve finally decided on a linen blend for the sashing. I’ve wanted to work with linen for clean lines and texture, so I’m going to take this opportunity to do so! I’ll use the pretty lemon fabric on the back. Now I just need to figure out what the main back fabric should be! Decisions, decisions!
Here’s just a few of the blocks.
Oh, there is so much more to share. But I’ve got to start somewhere. So hopefully this piques your interest. 😉
