Everybody ready for a fresh start in this brand new year? Well, I am making a stab at it.
So this is my Design Wall today. On the top is what I have done, so far, on Easy Street. I really like how it is looking and am loving my color choices.
I decided that I would kit up each block and triangle so all I have to do is pull out a baggie and sew another piece together.
Well, that’s not quite all. While doing the kitting I discovered that I must have misread the cutting directions a couple of times and there were not enough of some parts. So I made a list of what was still needed and put those blocks on top of the box of fabrics, ready for me to do the cutting, after I get all the ready blocks sewn together. I am calling that organized disorganization.
This is the Teapot for January. Again I had a small piece of funky fabric and was just waiting for the right teapot for it. I will eventually be appliqueing it with navy blue thread so the outline stands out.
I also got the second of my “scrap” placemats started. The colored lines are actually the strips of fabric cut off of the Funky Chicken applique pieces. I hate to waste even little pieces of batik so I have stuck them on this pretty fabric. Later I will be putting them on a backing fabric and quilt them both at the same time.
Yesterday I put my feathered star table topper on the frame. This little top has been ready to quilt for about 2 1/2 years but I have been afraid to quilt it. Since we used it in our Christmas decorations, I decided that it shouldn’t go back on the “to be quilted” rack so on the frame it went. I will be roaming in and out of there , in between Easy Street blocks, trying to decide how I want to quilt it.
I think the holidays wore Abby out. But she sleeps under a beautiful quilt and looks like a princess. This is one pampered pup.
