While I have been having a ball doing all sorts of things that I've had in my brain for weeks now, I'm thinkin' it's about time to get serious and start my partner's doll quilt for the Fab Little Quilt Swap. So many ideas have been swirling about her wants and desires so I need to start before I forget some of them. My hope is to make it whimsical and fun but still funky and wild. (Actually all those are all just about the same anyway, huh?) Duh! I have this vision in my head and I'm hoping it works! Lots of detail so your eye doesn't know where to look first. First though, I had to get out all the patterned fabric again............much to Toby's delight, I might add:
That little guy (8 lbs at most) jumps on and off the bed like a gazelle so as soon as I brought out the bins and plopped them on the bed, he was right there to help. Red seems to be his favorite color! Can you tell? You'd be surprised at how he loves to dig through those fabrics......I'd have a real mess if I wasn't right there to supervise! I'm sure he'd take off with a hunk for sure.
So after I picked a bunch of various colors, and sewed them together in mindless sewing (because I still have my cold), this is what I ended up with:
They'll eventually get cut down to about 2 inches square and hopefully be used as a border (at least that's the plan right now.) Of course though, I needed a middle piece so yesterday, I worked on that. I wanted to piece the whole thing (remember me talking about that??) Problem is that I'm not patient enough, so did it 50/50. Piecing and fusing:
I KNOW it doesn't look like much right now.........but I did that on purpose! I have plans.......so just wait! I'm so hoping that it will look amazing when it's finished. It's all in the details, dontcha know??? SO......you know what I'll be doing for the next few days..........stay tuned.........!!!
