Last weekend I felt ready to start some new projects. After all my valenestinish stuff and after cleaning up my work space, I was in the mood for spring. Here's a sneak peak of some WIPS (aka Works in Progress).This is on my design wall as I type. It's a new quilt for American Quilting where I work. The store seems to have a lot of Erin McMorris's Weekends collection still hanging around. The one surefire way to move fabric is to make something with it. Then it runs away. (It's crazy the stuff that people ignore for months and then fall in love with overnight as soon as they see it in a project.)
I volunteered for the job. I'm liking it. I threw in some new Sunkisssed from Sweetwater and it goes so well. I'm using this tutorial as the basis - I love the design. I'm making a few modifications so that we can make it bigger, cut kits, etc. But it's very similar to the original design.
Speaking feeling like spring, I also FINALLY started cutting up and making something with my vintage sheet collection. This is for someone special, but I'm going to finally make a picnic blanket for our family as well while it's all out. And I'm trying to hold my self to only TWO projects on the cutting table at a time.
Finally, a good cause. This is my friend Jenny Reeder. Jenny was diagnosed with Leukemia in November. She's the one we made the Union Jack quilt for a couple months ago. Jenny
