Its SEW easy to procrastinate!
This fabric basket (free pattern online http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/how-to-quilt/organization/diy-storage-projects) is suppose to be a box/rectangle shape but I just used the interfacing I had in the cupboard and it wasn't heavy enough.
But its a handy size to keep a few sewing things...even though it has a kitchen print liner!
Ah just perfect for my pattern collection. Oops there's another pattern I have never made...hmmm and I have been wanting a summer table runner...hmmm in citrus colours would be nice ;)
More procrastinating...in the form of shopping. This beautiful print was perfect for my log cabin backing, found at my local multinational outlet starting with S - the shop I love to whinge about. But surprising I am fairly happy with the new local shop, there is a small section of quilting fabric, but it was neat, tidy, the bolts were colour sorted, there was a mix of reproductions and moderns, all easy to view AND this was $9.06 per metre...yep I was pleasantly surprised.
So after all that faffing around, I sewed the blocks into vertical rows -which is a first for me! I do have a photo of them in the zig zag layout, but blogger will only load half the photo - not sure what the problem is. But my issue is making a decision AND doing the math to get the pieced border to fit. Well probably if I am really honest with myself, the bigger issue is not making too many more citrus coloured projects from the border fabrics....cos I would hate to do the math and then run out of fabric...especially if I had made something else with it!
Right off to find my calculator,
happy quilting, Sue.
