1. I have laid out my Sisters' Ten BOM all over the floor and have started piecing the top together! Sadly, during my sewing adventures, I realized that not all of my blocks are the right size. The sashing between each square is 12.5" long. Some of my blocks are longer, some are shorter, some are SIGNIFICANTLY longer (as in more than a quarter inch, so really hard to fudge it into place).
Love those wrinkles- NOT
A banana for scale
And I made this little heart with the leftover HSTs- I'm going to put the label in the center and put this on the back :)
3. I pulled fabric AND made my first block for the Fierce Quilters Bee! My palette is low volumes and earth colors- right now, I have green and red to contribute to the stash I'll be mailing out. I'm really excited to see how it comes back to me. I have few rules for this Bee, I really want everyone to contribute whatever they like to the mix.
So, I posted some photos from my trip to Europe to our group page as inspiration for my quilt. And I created this block straight from one of those photos. And when I say created, i mean it. I had no idea what I was doing, I just pulled fabric, made some slashes, and faked it til I made it. WOO.
This is a window at the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland. I wanted to see if I could re-create that patten in fabric, within my color scheme. I think I did an ok job of it, to be honest!
And to top it all off, I cut the pieces for a new pair of pajama shorts! I AM SO AWESOME.
