Just for a change of pace… I’ve started a new project. Yes I do love my paper piecing, but a girl needs a break every now and then. So I have started on a quilt for my bed.
The pattern is Fireworks by Camille Roskelley. It’s similar to the Swoon block but a bit smaller.
I’m using a bundle of fabrics from two lines by the same designer – Heather Mulder Peterson. I picked out the grey and teal prints from Seaside Cottage and Summer House.
Seriously not my normal colour palette but I do just adore it. Even that little pop of yellow, and I’m not a yellow fan. But it’s perfect in this combination.
A few months back I had grand plans to make these pretties into a giant lonestar for my bed. But I’m fickle. So I changed my mind. Now I’ve started cutting and sewing though, there’s no going back.
Yep, I’m happy so far with how these are coming together. Of course there are a bazillion more blocks to do, but at least I’ve made a start. And it’s a nice change from paper piecing blocks that come with catchphrases (the most recent one goes “Help me Obi-wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope”).
Don’t worry. There are still plenty more Star Wars blocks to share in future but for today, it’s just a revisit to last week’s pic. Oh and I have added a couple more of the patterns to my Craftsy shop as freebies :)
And that’s me for another week!
