Living in an apartment, there’s not a lot of space to stretch out. So while DH is in Maine right now eating lobster buffet (so envy!!), I thought to myself, what a great opportunity to start a new quilt?! I can take over the dinning table and living room and no one would complain about it!!!! So that’s what I did. I took out the Urban Chiks 1974 Charm Packs I bought a few weeks back and started cutting.
One hundred and eighty blocks and a hand of sore fingers later, I ended up with 5 piles of nicely cut tumbler shapes and a basket full of scraps~~ I love these prints sooooo much that I’m going to save the scrapes for now and think of a way to use them later…
When I bought these charm packs, I already knew I wanted to try this recipe from Moda Bakeshop. Instead of four packs, I used five, and I’m thinking of adding a border around it to expand the final size. I can’t remember how many times I had arranged and rearranged these blocks, but after squatting on the floor for so long, my thigh is still sore even now. I’ve moved onto sewing. Hopefully I can finish piecing them together before DH comes home, and all the pieces will match up nicely…. Fingers crossed.
I was very lucky to win this gorgeous project bag from Susan a few weeks ago!!! It is HUGE and a perfect fit for a bigger project!!!! I place the needle minder on it to give you a sense of the size~~ I love it!! Thank you so much, Susan!!!!
Well, I’m going back to my sewing now. Talk to you all later~~~
