When I walked into my sewing room this morning, I realized that BOTH of my design walls were empty! What!?! How could I let this happen!
I quickly printed out the Easy Churn Dash quilt pattern I had won during the 100 Quilts for Kids drive and headed to the fabric closet to see what I could come up with.
My personal challenge I set for myself when I got this suite of patterns from Amy Smart was to make them entirely from my stash. In a bottom drawer I re-discovered a whole bunch of 30's and 40's reproductions that I had inherited from a dear friend along with some muslin. Not my normal genre of fabric but I thought it might be a fun change of pace and a great tribute to Penny who loved traditional blocks.
I have been wanting to make a red, white and blue quilt lately so I decided to narrow my print colors to just red and blue.
I soon had 5 blocks finished to display on the wall so I was able to get back to my list of chores (which did not include sewing today by the way!)
I am anticipating a layout issue when I go to sew these blocks together so I might have to do a little problem solving later but I do like the way it is looking so far.
I have finished the quilt from Amy's Double Crossed pattern and will be posting pictures later this week. I tested it out last night as I watched TV and it worked perfectly. (ZZzzzzz)
I don't remember any of the show I tuned in to watch.
Also, in case you haven't entered yet, I still have a giveaway going on until Midnight Nov 26th. You can go here to check it out.
