Hi, how is your week going? It is all go here with another couple of quilts underway.
Firstly, I have finally cut into my 'The Birds and The Bees by Tula Pink' collection. It is now cut into 360 pieces of glorious colour. I searched for ideas on using this fabric for a while. I wanted something that I could really show off the fabric design. In the end I took a look at Tula Pink's book and found the Dream Weaver quilt design. I felt this design was perfect to show off the larger prints and to allow as much detail in the fabric to come through. It is amazing the small details in this collection when you look closely at it.
I have the fabrics laid out in the order they are going to be sewn.
I have managed to get blocks of 3 sewn together so far. I am really eager to get back in the sewing room to get these sewn into columns.
Then I have the HSTs which I shared last week. I have made a start and have 2 HSTs sewn together. It is tricky getting the corners to align exactly. I did a lot of unpicking and in the end moved on to another project. I know I will have to go back to them, and I will. I just think I am going to have to do this in small periods of time. I find unpicking frustrating and to spend a day doing that will drive my crazy.
So this is how it turned out the majority of the time, always a couple of millimetres out.
And this was as close as I could get them. It's still not perfect but I am happy enough with it.
That's all for today. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week!
