Here’s a granny square scarf that I finished up a few weeks ago. It’s from the booklet Modern Vintage by Panda. I love the vintage/retro look of it and can’t wait to wear it this winter. This morning there was a distinct chill in the air when I was out bushwalking so it won’t be long before we’ll be pulling out the warmer clothes!
As far as other GIT (Get it Finished) projects are going…..I have Vignette (aka Fabric Vomit) quilted and the binding sewn on – just waiting for some TV time to hand stitch the binding. I’m also working pretty hot and heavy on my New York Beauty (NYB). I’m to the point where I need to sew the separate sections together and then finish up with the appliqué centers.
I’m ready to have something else on my design wall so I might really do a hard push on the NYB this week.
Modern Monday is ready to be pin basted and quilted and the fabric for Lisa’s nana quilt has been painted, washed, pressed and is ready to use.
Whew……not much to show but I have been working! Next project on the design wall might be my wonky basket quilt. I’m ready to tackle the appliqué borders – at least the design portion. I’m thinking to do something like the top border of THIS quilt. It’s a Lori Smith pattern called All roads lead to Olive’s (hmmm….wonder where that name came from?).
I’m also ready to tackle the sashing for my Grandmother’s Choice quilt. All the pieces are cut and ready to sew. It will be a good project for a mini-quilt retreat that I’m going on in a couple weeks or as a leader/ender project.
My bud Candy has really tempted me with starting another hexi project – using Mickey Dupree designs but so far I’ve resisted ordering the book and templates. I’m holding firm on not starting anything new until I get a few more of my Get it Finished projects completed. Let me tell you though……I’m EXTREMELY tempted! Maybe YOU need a new project? Check out Mickey’s site…..really cool hexagon ideas – and a great travel/tv project.
The other thing tempting me? More Japanese Taupe fabrics from THIS site, One World Fabrics. I love the work of Yoko Saito and her fabrics. My supply of taupes has been whittled down with the work on my New York Beauty so I will need to replenish. The question is WHEN? Will I find some taupes at the AQS in Des Moines or should I order online? Decisions, decisions. Or, do I order the line that’s out NOW and also get the line that will be coming out shortly? 🙂
