The accident, not as bad as it sounds. I am making a snapshots quilt from Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson and I misread the instructions for the backing a cut, well, a lot of extra pieces. But I know that I made the correct amount of pieces in the first place, so this quilt seems to have a lot of scraps. Anyways, I have enough left over to make another quilt. A baby quilt that is.
Now that I've taken a picture I see that I need to rearrange it a bit to separate a couple of the same prints. I'm a little sad because I used every. single. scrap. of my Pure fabric line and as can be seen, I didn't need to. Oh well, the good news is, this will be a very 'low level' work project because I just need to sew a few rows together. And add a border.
The makeover was much needed, and really quick.
I put a layer of batting over the grey cover and just popped the new one on top of that. Gives it a little more cushion. I used a tutorial from Craftiness is not Optional because I just wasn't sure how to go about it. And it's super easy. Maybe since I'm done school I feel like I don't have to think anymore?? The fabric is from Connecting Threads. I love how bright and cheery it is. And not covered in yucky stains.
Lastly, I have started a new project. I have had the fabric for a while, I just wanted to get a little further on the snapshots before I started. Anyhow, it's a quilt tutorial from Moda Bake Shop called Starry Eyed, and I just love love love it. I knew I had to make it. I was even really uncreative and got exactly the same fabric line because it looks so good. And it was hard, at the time, to find a Christmas line that had charm packs and layer cakes. I would have liked to do basically any of these or the flourish line from Robert Kaufman, that was available back when I ordered. But, I honestly do love Countdown to Christmas, I just wish there was less black. Oh well, it's going to be great!!
I just need to cut out the sashing and I'll have all of the fabric for the front cut out.
It's been a good day!
