It’s starting to get cold here, with winter just round the corner. Of course cold is relative. I live 5 minutes away from the beach, so for us costal types, the temperature dips to below 20C and we’re freezing. Which means a new quilt is in order. Any excuse for a new quilt.
Especially when I have that gorgeous layer cake of Winter’s Lane just sitting there waiting for me to sew with it.
So sew I did.
Yep. I didn’t even cut up the fabric. I just picked sewed those layer cake squares together. This way I can admire all those pretty pretty prints.
Especially these ones with little cardinals in the trees.
Here I thought sewing simple squares (pre-cut no less!) together would make for a simple project. And yet I spent quite a bit of time with my friend the seam ripper. Between sewing the quilt sideways (6 squares across instead of down!), then muddling up the order of the squares, well… there was a lot of unpicking.
So there are still prints next to each other that I normally would have moved. But I have had enough of unpicking.
Somedays the sewjo’s just not happening. Even on the simplest of projects. But hey, my seams match and I have a decent sized lap quilt (50ish x 60ish) and seriously pretty fabrics. I’m just going to get some minky to back it with and call it done. Plenty of other projects that are requiring attention!
Speaking of future projects – there’s a super awesome blog hop coming up hosted by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts. A month long celebration of all things Kate Spain! You can link up projects you’ve already made, or new ones you’ve started with Kate Spain fabric during June. Oh and there are prizes to be had.So time to pull out that Good Fortune or Cuzco and start planning! Pop over and check out all the details here.
And that's me for WiP Wed. How about you?
