Does anyone else do this?? You’ve got UFO’s and projects to work on and then while looking at other blogs you see something you just HAVE to try……NOW!
Remember the green I also bought the other day thinking it would work for my Easy Street quilt…..I’m not going to use it so I cut some up for my Spinning Pinwheel. Then I decided I didn’t like the background and switched to a ecru tone on tone…..better.
Here you can see the print I used….lots of neat leaves. It is called Journeys by Kathy Davis for Free Spirit or else it is called Leaves in Harmony….there is a lot of info on the selvage edge and yes…I’m cutting off my selvages to someday make something with them.
I made a mistake cutting my pieces and I should have known better. There were 8 pieces of fabric and I should have only cut 4 at a time. I use a small rotary blade (which might be getting ready for a new blade) and practically sawed through the fabric…..which resulted in my pieces not being as exact as they should have been.
You have to be careful piecing as you are working with all bias edges.
I had enough to make 2 more blocks but I have to admit…..I’m not crazy about the different designs created with my fabric. It was fun to make them, now I’ll just have to decide what I’m going to do with them.
We ended up going to Zero Dark Thirty yesterday, Builder Bob loved it…..me….I thought it was very good. The 2 buckets of popcorn…..priceless!
Be sure and see what others are working on at Patchwork Times.
