I promised my mom I would make her a pieced and quilted jacket. Out of these fabrics.
See that item over there in the WIP sidebar list, with the status note: “major procrastination in effect” ?
That’s this one.
These fabrics are, objectively speaking, quite lovely. What you see here is about 3/4 of a layer cake of Moda William Morris reproduction prints (Mum asked me to omit all the ones with pink, lavendar, and mint in them). And props are due to Moda because they did an exquisite job, and the quality of this cotton is just luscious, very fine and smooth and silky.
Too bad I can barely stay awake looking at these colors. I’m up for making my first quilted jacket. Glad to have a reason to tackle one, actually. And I love sewing for my mom because she adores everything I make for her. But blue and beige? Schnnnooooooooorrrrrre.
Nevertheless, when I couldn’t stand another minute of trying to learn InDesign this afternoon (seriously, I didn’t know whether to break down and cry to relieve the pressure or just let my head explode), I went into the sewing room and retrieved the project bin from the closet. I’ve got the fabrics laid out on my ironing board, and if inspiration won’t kick in and deliver a good idea or two, I’ll just have to kick it into gear myself.
