I haven't done a WIP post in a little while so I thought I'd share what's going on in my sewing room this week.
But before I do that, I need to give you a little background... A few months ago, my sweetie mentioned that he would really like me to make new curtains for the living room at the cottage. Now, I am not a big fan of sewing anything but quilty things. So I decided to make quilt tops, back them with a solid fabric and sew them together to make my curtains.
This is a country cottage, decorated in mostly earth tones - browns, beiges, greens. And my sweetie wanted something dark so that people couldn't see inside when the curtains were closed.
So I went through my stash of "traditional" fabric, picked a few I sort of liked still and got started.
And this is where I am now...
A stack of 20 15" Card Trick blocks ready to assemble into two panels.
But all that brown bored me to death so I needed to cut into something a little more lively. I took out the Riley Blake challenge fabric bundle and cut a bunch of 3" squares. Here they are... All piled neatly waiting for assembly.
I'm going to have a little bit of sewing time tomorrow night... I need to decide whether I want to continue with the curtains or start sewing my Riley Blake Challenge quilt. Decisions, decisions... :-)
I will be linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday this week - check it out by clicking the button in my sidebar.
Oh and don't forget to come back here on Friday for Blogathon Canada! There will be prizes...
See you then!
