The idea of putting in the zipper for my shirt is daunting me. But I have caught a sewing bug. So I decided just to sew straight lines. The best way to do this seemed to make a quilt! I have lots of fabric scraps - time to use those suckers up!!
So, I have started what will be my first quilt. I made a pillow once, like 20 years ago, but I don't think that counts.
I didn't want something complicated. No triangles. So I chose the Blissful Quilt by Pat Bravo. It's all rectangles - perfect!
As I am sewing with my scraps, the color scheme is completely different to her suggestions. Here's what I decided upon:
I'm having fun even during the cutting process, so that's a good sign!
I would've preferred to use the flowery fabric for one of the bigger rectangles, but I just didn't have enough fabric. So I am forced to use it on a smaller piece, which I feel like is too bad 'cuz the beauty of the print is lost a bit on such a small piece. Oh well.
Here are my first two rows assembled:
That's lots of brown, but I'm pleased so far! ;) many many rows to go!
