I haven’t had any time to work on any sewing projects in about 5-6 weeks! I know, can you believe it?! I am starting to feel sorry for myself! Since getting back from my two-week trip to China, I have been working non-stop on a homework project on value for my design class. It’s due tonight, so I am looking forward to sewing all weekend!
I have been holding onto this set of Ava Rose fabrics for awhile now, and finally decided to figure out what to make with it.
I like the charm squares quilt design featured in the December 2008 issue of Sew Hip magazine (my favorite magazine!), but, of course, I had to change it up to make it my own design, and make it bigger. I laid out the squares by color and like the way this came out, even though it was midnight so the picture is a little dark. After I finished taking the picture, I decided it was more rectangle-shaped than I wanted it so I moved a row to make it more square.
I am going to put white borders around the squares and the rose pink for the binding. I don’t have a large enough piece of fabric for the backing, so I guess that means for fabric shopping!
