Kim is still here and we have been having fun hanging out in the sewing room for a few days. She leaves today but she got a lot done on her new quilt.
I decided that I needed to get busy and start looking for a project to take to Maine. I already knew that I wanted to use up some of my blue scraps. I've made a purple and yellow scrap quilt, a quilt using green scraps and one using brown scraps. It's time to tackle the blue drawer.
I got out a stack of books and started searching for a simple pattern.
This is the quilt that excited me to make and it's made with all squares. It's from Kaffe Fassett book called Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts.
Here are all of the fabrics that I pulled for this quilt. I will not do any cutting before the trip. I'm just going to get it all packed up and ready.
I have one kit cut in patriotic scraps and then I found these fabrics in my stash. I bought these YEARS ago and, clearly, have used them in some projects but I've lost interest in them. They are printed ombres that are overprinted with various leaf prints. I thought it might work in the same type of layout. So I cut all of it into 4.5" squares and picked 2 shades of gray for the inner and outer borders.
I think it will actually work out OK and will all tie together with some leaf quilting. Stay tuned for updates on all of these projects in August.
Now I need to get back to that Goldfinch!
