Next Project



I spent about an hour yesterday looking through magazines, trying to find a quilt that I liked enough to use these fabrics with. What did I find? That I really liked Judy's churn dash center and wanted to make a churn dash quilt! So, the cutting began and now I'm working much more in my comfort zone, all those pastels were just not me! That's why I'm trying to use them up!

I will have churn dash blocks in the 5 colors you see in the picture. I have the burgundy ones finished (and they're much darker than they look in the picture!) They will be set on point with the gold fabric you see under them, then the sunflowers will be the border.

But for right now, I think I'll take a break from my machine. I've been sewing for several hours each day since Monday, I probably should go straighten the house, fold my laundry...or at least make a cup of tea and go read for awhile!

I think I remember when you bought that lovely sunflower fabric that I think must be meant for the border? Those blocks will look great with it!

Really? The quilt is so gorgeous, and I would have thought it *is* you! These are nice ones, too.

I like both quilts. The pastels aren't me either, but I still like it. Your new colors are very "autumn" to me. Perfect for an end of summer quilt.

Cynthia said...

Nice fabrics you've chosen. Should make a lovely quilt.

it's amazing how different this pattern looks in different colors - can't believe you're starting another one already!
