So, what did I do with my day? I started a quilt, of course! Remember I said I was wanting to make one? Well, I gave in.
But first. Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile may remember this quilt...
It's the wonky charm quilt I made back in 2011...from a design by Erin of Why Not Sew?. I loved making this quilt! I used Sherbet Pips fabrics by Aneela Hoey and Kona cotton solid in white. I don't usually make more than one quilt of the same design (with the exception of postage stamp and patchwork quilts), but when my last box from Cathy contained a lot of A Walk in the Woods fabrics by Aneela Hoey, I knew that I would be using them to make another wonky charm quilt. (You remember Cathy, don't you? The blogging friend who sends me her 'scraps'.) This will be bigger than a baby quilt, but not quite as big as a lap quilt. And, I may make a doll quilt to match. Perhaps. ~grin~
I got a lot done, too. It's so fun and easy to put it together...
So far, so good!
On another note...when buying fabric, I tend to buy fabric collections. So much easier for me that way. But, in the last few weeks, I started putting some fabrics together that are not all from the same fabric collection. I know! Shut the front door!!! In the 5 years that I have been making quilts, I have only done one quilt with an assortment of fabrics (scraps, if you will)...and that was the first postage stamp quilt that I made. See it here. Otherwise, they have all been of a collection.
Here is what I have thus far...I'd like to add at least this many other fabrics to the pile. I definitely need to add in some blue and perhaps a bit of pink. We'll see. Not sure what my plan is for them. I'd like to do something different. I am liking these a lot...
Today was a beautiful spring day...a bit cool and sunny!
Hope you had a great day!
