It appears that I've "accidentally" started another quilt. ;o)
How did that happen you wonder?
Maybe I just needed another WIP? haha...
I could blame it on a combination of the changing season (with its inspiring colours) or simply because I replaced my summer pillow covers with these ones.
|The softest pillows ever! Can't beat fine wale corduroy and chenille for coziness. Now they need a quilt to coordinate. ;o)|
Add in the inspiration to be found in the Falling for Modern Maples Flickr group, it's not so surprising I couldn't help myself.
Anyways, I've jumped right in, by sewing...
|Can't you picture swirling leaves with this combination? :o)|
|I just love this Katie Jump Rope print. I was lucky enough to receive this in a swap because I totally missed out on buying any when it was available.|
and Block #3.
Now, I admit that more would have been sewn, except for a shortage of that awesome background fabric. Not to worry, though. More is on the way from Fabric Spot. :o)
|Block at left is 12" while Block on right is 9"|
See how serious I am about making these? I made blocks in 2 sizes... initially to accommodate the little bit of background fabric I had to use. Now I'm thinking I will continue to make different sized blocks as a design feature. Ha! ;o)
Here's a quick pull of fabrics selected for more blocks. Not sure that all of these will make the cut, but it's so much fun to play!
Hey, why don't you join me? The blocks are easy to sew and just think, you NEED a quilt for the cold weather ahead. Yes? Yes. ;o)
