And then the next morning, it was time to cut ;) And my oh my, how I am just loving this stack of classic red, black, and white trimmings. They are just so pretty!!
And before you knew it, I had my quilt all cute out. A stack of large squares in black, white, and red, and a stack of small square is white. So are you wondering what I am making yet??
Plume!!!! I have wanted to make this quilt for quite some time. It is just so fun and pretty in it's simple tweak on 4 patch goodness. And why did I pull Volume II from the shelf . . .well because it is just perfect to make another classic red, white, and black quilt so I have one in reserve for when my Alma Mater needs one for an auction ;) Always good to be prepared right ;) And I have to say, I sure love that my Alma Mater's colors are red, black, and white, because it is such a classic color scheme and it means I get to sew with stunning bundles like this one!!!
And just in case you want to make up your own classic red, black, and white Plume quilt along with me . . . you can find the Plume Pattern in the Fat Quarter Style book by It's Sew Emma and you can find Fat Quarter Bundles of Volume II at Lou Lou's Fabric Shop or Fat Quarter Shop ;)
All right, now I best get back to one of those WIP, as I have a tutorial to share on Wednesday and it isn't going to finish it self up ;)
This looks very exciting. It is great to work in the "sweat shop" I hope you get lots of snack breaksReplyDelete

My oldest WIP is 4yrs old. Theres a serious mental block about trying to get it done. Oh my, but anyway thanks for the chance of some new fabrics. Now that would be a blessing.ReplyDelete
