Holy OMG. Did you ever decide to do something so scary that you hyperventilate every time you allow yourself to think about it. Of course not, because you are a GROWN UP PERSON Me, not so much apparently.
I, along with some friends from one of my on-line sewing bees, signed up for the Sarah Fielke, 2019 BOM entitled Coming Home. It begins on January 31, 2019 and runs through the whole year. I hafta say the finished quilt promises to be stunning….if I can keep it together and get it done. The quilt is a combination of appliqué and pieced blocks. Most folks are going to be honing their needle turn appliqué skills on this one, but I’m still thinking I might do a raw edge technique of some kind.
Here are most of the fabrics that I am planning to use. The confetti F8ths will be for star points in the centre, the black/white yardage is for alternating backgrounds and that lovely grunge bundle will be what I use to build the houses.
…and I think I’m going to purchase a FQ bundle of some soft coloured solids – maybe one of these, because I am not good at anything even slightly resembling a limited color scheme.
Do you want to see my drawing of what the quilt will look like. Sure you do. Check it out. FYI I coloured the backgrounds in before I found the black/white background fabrics but now I think I should have gone with grunge backgrounds too.
And that my friends is ALL I plan to be working on for the entire year. I will finish up some WIPs in the downtime between block drops and I am taking part in Stash Bee again this year. I’m pretty sure I have my hands full.
AND….this is my final post for the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge. Happy New Year to everyone.
