I had a very productive weekend and it was wonderful! I enjoyed every minute I spent with my sewing machine and I was able to get a Speck top together.
Now these aren't the Speck blocks I showed about 2 weeks ago. Those blocks just weren't making me happy so I started again with a charm pack of Sandy Gervais Phenomenal Fall. Now these colors are beautiful. I decided to make my version square and went with 16 blocks.
I found a cute little polka dot fabric for the background and I LOVE that border fabric. I bought a yard so I have plenty left for another project. I'm planning on binding this with the multi-color houndstooth plaid I used on the inner border. Hopefully I'll get this done before the week is out. I'm chomping at the bit to put out Fall decorations.
And I was able to make some more progress on my Fallout Stars. In fact I got all of the blocks done - yippee!
I tried to not over think arranging them and I think they are fine just the way they are. Now onto sewing the rows together. I'm not planning on any borders at this moment, so it should measure about 72" X 54" - a nice lap size.
And some more stash diving retrieved another vintage Hoffman chicken print! I'll bet this has been on my shelves for at least 15 years, so it has been appropriately aged and it ready for its close up - LOL!
Well there is lots for me to work on this week. I hope I can get this top all sewn together along with quilting Speck. I'm thinking of quilting Fallout Stars myself since it isn't ginormous and I have a plan that would let me use my walking foot and not drop my feed dogs. I'm not good at free motion and I'd prefer to leave the fancy stuff to Cass, my long arm quilter. Wish me luck!
