A new Work-In-Progress — a lap quilt – inspired by this book: http://www.amazon.com/Simplify-Camille-Roskelley-Quilts-Modern/dp/1571209387. When I saw what she did with her ‘Authentic’ fabric line, (and I just happend to have one charm pack of that fabric), the wheels started turning — and I started cutting and sewing.
A modern style design – sort of a stacked coins, framed and set on a soft grey background. The basic center blocks are almost all completed — and, now I’m on the search for just the right shade of dark greyish/black Kona cotton to frame each block. So much stitching fun — I think I love the ‘creating’ as much as I love the finished project.
And, there’s more creating to do. Here’s my stack of sewing Works-In-Progress, piling up on my sewing table — they all are vying for my attention. There’s another quilt, summer pj pants for Joe-Joe, nightgowns and skirts for Laney, a quilt for a soldier in our family being deployed soon, and the list goes on and on. So many patterns/ideas — so little time !!
