With so many WIPs, UFOs, and FUFOs* on hand of course I had to go and start a new project. The wide wild thing dominating the wall is the beginnings of a lap quilt for an imaginary friend. (What, you don’t have an imaginary friend to make quilts for? Well what are you waiting for? Go dream one up!). I’m designing this as I go along, one horizontal row at a time. It will feature more wonky sawtooth rows, and probably some other somethings as well.
* Future UFOs: unstarted projects for which fabric has been purchased, binned, and ignored
I have some more prints picked out for this, and recently acquired a few more Kona solids to go with them (the poinsettia print came home too, though not for this project):
This off-white is called “merinque” and it is quite lovely. My original plan was to mix up the colors in each block, but when I laid it all out after constructing the HST and QST units, that looked like a jumbled mess, so I did it this way instead. Not all that interesting, but the colors are pretty. Now that I’ve shown it to you it’s headed for a bin with the others from recent months.
Also up there, the latest batch of “World Traveler” blocks, finished and pressed yesterday. I stuck them back up because I can’t resist seeing how each new batch of blocks looks together. I’ve lost track of the block count, and suspect I’m not yet halfway through. These blocks are just right for those days when a little sewing time feels necessary, but mental alertness is low after a long day at the desk. I’ve had a lot of those days this past month, so am making faster progress than expected!
