Only a moderately productive week, alas!
Shattered Star Quilt
Still going! But it's all starting to come together now!
There's been a lot of counting in the last ten days. How many HSTs do I have? How many HSTs do I need? Do I have more of the correct fabric? What if I don't?
(I didn't have enough HSTs, I needed to create about 30 more - that was my use-of-fat-quarters, and my lack-of-counting-blocks, not a pattern issue!)
Anyway, one quarter of the center top done - three to go!
And the borders - let's not forget the borders!
Simone's Baby Things Bag
I started cutting, realised the front pocket would cover the lovely Echino pattern I'm using - Wish Birds in Purple - and so dumped the front pocket. And then I ran out of interfacing and had to find time to get some more. Newsflash: I work 8-5 and can't easily get to a shop that stays open later than 5pm.
But I will get it done! I will! I must!
(Still) To Do:
Sydney MQG: Pickle Dish group quilt
Sydney Quilt Show Quilt: AUUUUUGH! I need to have something laid out for the submission by the end of March! WHERE ON EARTH AM I GOING TO FIND THE TIME?
I did sketch out some designs during the week while bored at work, though. Don't know if I actually like them. But I'm deliberately focusing on entering a Modern Quilt this year - which, to me, means a traditional pattern, with modern influences of negative space, solids, and patterning. I'd really like to include ombre in the colour themes, too.
I feel like I need to print out a bunch of tiny little block patterns and then play 'put them together in pretty patterns'. Which probably isn't such a bad idea...
I hope your week has been less frantic and more productive than mine!
