I haven't forgotten to post. But rather have been a little busy and my time to sew has been limited. :( But in the last week, I have been quite busy with the sewing machine working away!!
I started this HST last weekend, and as of tonight I have the complete top sewed together! So excited to have this one completed this far in such a short amount of time. I am loving the mix of yellows and blues. And yes, there are sailboats, and fish all over the blues. Now to come up with the design for the back.
I also have been working on the string quilt gradually. Sewing all the have sides of the squares of one color and eventually adding the other color has been a tedious process. I have gotten a little impatient and had to sew some of the pieces together (using my template for guidance) and needless to say, I AM LOVING IT! All the cutting, and sewing with no idea what it may look like is coming out beautifully! This helps re-engerize me to finish up sewing the purples with other colors and cut the red and sew it all up. Hopefully I can find some time this week to finish this.
I love orange and I just think the black helps define the orange and each color! I love scrappy and this is all scrappy. Definitely one of the coolest designs I have done!. Thanks Kate for the idea.
work in progress, but hey, aren't we all? It is only Wednesday,and can't wait to see how it looks come Friday :) (linking up to WIP Wednesday)
