After posting about my stash, my friend C made a comment that made me realize that I forgot a shelf that is in my sewing storage room...my collection of sewing books and my magazine holder of patterns.
|This shelf has lots of sewing books but is missing Quilting Modern (I had it out to choose a pattern), We Love Color and Modern Patchwork, two recent purchases.|
|The majority of my patterns are actually in pdf form and stay on this memory stick.|
Also, I decided to work on a baby quilt for a friend's sister. I was inspired by a quilt on Pinterest and decided I could figure out the math. I am usually very math-phobic (something I'm working on) but I thought I could manage this. I played with graph paper, sketches, cut out pieces of paper to flip and turn and still I made a mistake with the calculations! (A little something called seam allowances fooled me in the end. Bah). I trimmed my blocks to make them all square and the results are glorious! I LOVE this baby quilt so far (even with all those finicky 1" strips) and I can't wait to finish it for the new mom and her baby girl.
Now I'm just waiting for my order of Kona White to arrive at my LQS...I purchased 4 metres during their white & beige sale but they were out of stock. I hope it comes soon, because this quilt is on hold until it does!
