On my design wall
There is life in my sewing room again! Not one, but TWO (non-baby) quilts in the works. I am working on killing two birds with one stone with this one. Finally digging into my ridiculous stash of '30's fabrics that I've been hoarding AND conquering my lone star fears.
I found a PDF tutorial by Kaye Wood that has been enormously helpful and it's coming along pretty well so far. I just love strip piecing.
Other than when I my helper is "helping." Those are a pile of 2 1/2 inch strips ready to become a large scrappy border for the star. And by "ready" I mean as soon as I kick her off of them.
And this is another little number I've been working on involving another out-of-control stash of leafy prints. I have enough to make two larger quilts out of the fabric I have set aside for this one. I'm currently held up, though, as I wait for one last 1/2 yard of Kona Tangerine to show up.
