I’ve been puttering in the sewing room this morning. I did update the State of the Stash page (button in sidebar) with this weeks totals. I did add all those lovely Kona fat quarters in. So I’m doing better not buying yarn than I am not buying fabric but I don’t randomly buy fabric just because I like it. I do only buy with a plan and those fat quarters will be used in several projects. So if you check the Stash page you’ll see I’m still in the black (thank goodness for the backing on the wedding quilt which offset those 36 fat quarters!) 🙂
I already put part of those two fat quarters to use (how’s that for stashbusting!) LOL . This morning I quickly pieced two blocks of the Dr. Seuss quilt to see if I liked them as well in fabric as I do on paper/computer screen. And I do. These will be fairly quick and fun to make.
I posted a photo of what the whole layout will look like yesterday. It will be fun picking fqs to match up to the Seuss precuts.
Here’s the photo that appeared in Quiltmaker in addition to Emerald City (which I didn’t notice until later yesterday after posting the first one). They also give directions for a wall hanging size project that they call Peridot — it looks like it was made in honor of St. Patty’s Day with all those various green and white fabrics.
Peridot is the birthstone for both of my children. I just might have to make this one.
Love your Dr. Suess quilt. I can’t wait to get my quiltmaker so I can make your Emerald City quilt. You are so creative. Thanks for sharing!
Love the circular motion of Emerald City. Your Dr Seuss quilt is going to be adorable.
I’m not really a fan of green, any green… but I’m loving that quilt! ~Melanie
peridot is just stunning! you’ve outdone yourself with this design!
Beautiful design. I may have to make one for older son – his birthday is in August.
