Where do the days go?! I can't believe we are almost halfway into February already! We are still into the hottest of the hot season and I can't wait for cooler days, but that won't happen before middle or end March. I'm soooo longing for cooler days and the hiking season! :)
Well, I've been busy sewing. If you read my previous post, you know I was trying something new; disappearing pinwheel blocks. I love this block! There are so many possibilities. Since I'm in for a 'scrappy year' and currently on SSD (Strict Stash Diet / Fabric Diet), I decided to go for even more scrappy blocks by using up bits and pieces. Some of the fabrics I have used are leftovers from this quilt I made for my dear childhood friend Johnny's 50th birthday a couple of years ago.
I'm not sure about the backing... I don't have anything that is big enough and nothing really fit for a scrappy backing either... think I will have to keep an eye open for fabric sales! Yes, I know! I'm not allowed to buy 'unnecessary' fabrics (SSD!), but I am allowed when I don't have anything that fits! Right?! :)
I bought these fabrics almost two years ago and first now I finally got ideas what to make. I think it is said something like don't cut fabrics before it calls to you ... or something like that? Anyone knows?
I love these fabrics! They are sooo vernal... you can almost smell the spring, can't you?! :)
The fabrics are from the 'Spring Spectacular' by Fabri-Quilt.
Set of 4 coasters
A mug rug for a friend in Norway
A table topper
A pair of placemats
Another pair of placemats
I have a few more items where I have used 'Spring Spectacular', but I'm not happy with the photos. Later!
A trivet / hot pad
A pair of pot holders
I have enjoyed making these items and they are listed in my Etsy shop.
Over the last days I have been working on another scrappy quilt, but that will be a secret until my next post! :)
