Well it feels great to be back behind the sewing machine after a break over Christmas. My first project for the year is a quilt for my husband. I think he was feeling a little left out :)
When I asked him what colours he'd like, he answered 'blue' so I asked 'what other colours would you like?' and he continued to answer 'blue and blue'. So that is almost what he's getting. I decided it needed a little something and added in a splash of red.
Block A - are all completed.
Block B - are all completed.
Block C - are in progress
And then there are the pile of bags with the remainder of the quilt
I am using Michael Miller's Cotton Couture Indigo for the background and for the backing and Cotton Couture Fog for the trees. I was a little worried that some of the darker blues would blend a little too much but seeing them now I am happy that there is enough difference in their depth of colour.
In other news, I have booked myself in for some sewing classes at Sew This & That over the next 3 months which I am excited about. My first one is tomorrow night and is for the BOM using Marti Michell templates. This is something completely new to me, so I am excited about learning something new.
I'll be back later in the week with an update on the class.
I hope everyone is having a great week.
Thanks for stopping by.
