Thanks for all your suggestions on my last post! Kristen, who doesn’t have a blog of her own, even multiplied the image in Photoshop for me so I could see what it looked like. Thanks, Kristen! I was going back and forth about what to do when on Saturday morning, my oldest little guy was cutting some fabric and I noticed he had laid his fabric on top of one of my quilt squares. I screamed. He stopped cutting. But it was too late. He had cut right into the quilt square. Sigh. On the bright side, it made it easier for me to decide to start all over from scratch.
I went through my stash and looked for pink and green fabrics that would go together. It turns out that 90% of my stash is made up of pinks and greens! I spent a lot of time cutting, then sewing and had a few failures that I’m scrapping (can anyone say TOO BUSY?):
but now I have a new, more simple design that I think will come together nicely. I’ve cut all the strips – I just have the sewing to finish.
I also made some cards.
One whole charm pack of Poetry fabric by April Cornell. 80 prints. Lots of fusing, cutting and ironing. Result? 35 note cards (that’s it??). I’m coming up on my 1000th comment. I think my 1000th commenter will be getting a set of these.
