First up, some scraps from a new project I have planned using these gorgeous prints from Ava Rose, Deena Rutter's newest line for Riley Blake Designs that will release in March ;) And this new project will be coming in the way of a new tutorial, just sayin!!! I am so super excited and am already just loving playing with these gorgeous teals, blues, and corals, so pretty!!!
Next up (and this cutting probably took the longest) some lovely strings that went on for days in beautiful blues and greens. These strings are 1 1/2" wide and will be for a little secret sewing ;) I had so much fun digging through my stash drawers and chopping off a little strip of every print in my blue and green drawer. Now I figure, as they are all so skinny, I think I am going to starch them all . . . that might not be quite as fun ;)
When I finished up with my strings, it was time to cut up some paper piecing to make a Cake . . . well a Cake Mix that is :) This is a fun, new paper piecing product from Miss Rosies Quilt Co. aka Moda Rosie and she talks all about them over at the Moda Cutting Table. And you should totally watch the video, it is so fun!!! I can't wait to share what I am whipping up with these :)
And finally, a quick project that I decided on last minute because I just couldn't bear to fold up fabric that was already ironed ;) You see, last month I did a little secret sewing using beautiful blues and greens from Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis. I was using 28 Fat Quarters and had a good Fat Eighth left of each and so I didn't want to throw them in the scrap drawer and was debating folding them back into a nice little bundle. Then I through, why not just cut out a quilt!!! I decided on the Mosaic pattern from Fat Quarter Style by It's Sew Emma. It used up just about every bit of fabric I had left just perfectly and it will be quick and easy to sew together and make a beautiful new bedspread for one of the boys.
So ya, a prime example of why my "to make" list just keeps growing ;) And of course, I wouldn't have it any other way!!!
So now . . . I think it is time to start sewing!!!
Have you cut up any new projects to start recently . . .tell me about them in the comments ;)
