... Start one new!
That's been my mantra the last few years and
it really helps relieve the guilt when I have the urge to start something new.
I finished two tops at retreat last week; I've earned a fresh start!
My secrect sister gave me an unusual pack of 10-inch squares -- Melbourne by Andrea Komninos for Benertex. You might gather from the collection name that it has a bit of an aboriginal look and yet it's not "in your face." The colors of brown-gray, green, and aqua are so lovely and so don't go with much that I already have. Hence my stashing spree last Friday.
|Hmmm .... which project should I choose?|
I wasn't able to find the matching charm pack so I cut some 5" squares from FQs and yardage using a wavy blade.
My first project from this book had square placement and square cuts.
|Layered, pinned, and ready to stitch|
|Five and Dime Ruler|
... I can hardly wait to see how this is going to turn out.
Linking with Patchwork Times.
Looks like a lot of fun! I'd say two finishes definitely deserves a start! :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful fabrics. I've yet to try the raw edge layered technique but it sure would save time.ReplyDelete
Delightful fabric combinations Libby. I like that ruler too - a handy tool for working with these blocks!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing this one when it's done. I haven't made any from that book yet. I still haven't unpacked my machine from the retreat! School has started, so I'm getting back in the groove. See you tomorrow evening, right! Sharon B in FranklinReplyDelete
