I have two projects that I want to work on this week. First. I have received enough of my Paper Pieced Improv Tree Blocks (tutorial found here) from the Bees Knees group to get the first four rows of the quilt put together. I guess that means I should probably figure out the measurements of my rows and cut some backing fabric :) Oh, I would love to have this ready in time for Christmas, we shall see if that happens or not :)
Secondly, I decided to give myself a little handmade Christmas present. This is something I have been wanting to do for quite some time and this lovely bundle of True Colors by Jenean Morrison is just perfect!!!
Oh the fun part, picking the fabrics!! I need 10 Fat Eighths for this little project and wanted them in a rainbow so I figured it would be best, to first lay all of the Fat Quarters out in color order and go from there. Although, once I had them laid out, I just sat and stared because they are oh so pretty!!!
I seriously went back and forth for like a half an hour trying to pick my favorite combination. Every print is just so perfect it was so hard to pick just 10. In the end, these are the prints I went with. I just love seeing a rainbow of fabrics, it just makes me smile!
And now, I can actually start my project. Are you wondering what it is??? Don't worry, I won't make you wait long. I am hoping to have it all put together and finished by Friday, and I plan on taking some pictures along the way for another fun tutorial ;) Yippee!!
And last but not least, It wouldn't be a Work In Progress post without the run down :) It is sad that since the last time I did this in September I have added 9 quilts in the completed category and yet the same 4 quilts still sit in the Quilting Stage category. I think something needs to be done about that and quick!! I see a new little goal coming up :)
