No, I'm not in a mood or anything like that, despite the title of this post. Singing the Blues is what I am considering naming my next quilt. Because it is mostly blues. Bit obvious that really.
I laid out the fabric I have cut so far and had a look. It isn't going to be a very big quilt, but I do plan on lots of white around it. I am not going to have my blues going right to the edge. This is what I have so far.
I am already mulling over hand quilting ideas for this one, so it not being a big quilt might be a good thing. The layout above is just a trial one. I need the floor space back so I can baste Salt Air. Standing and looking at the layout creates constant change. I've already moved things round about a dozen times just to come to this arrangement. And the more I look the more my brain changes them. This will be one of those quilts that has more pondering time than piecing time put into it.
Unfortunately the weatherman was completely wrong and we only got enough snowflakes today to get the girls' (and my) hopes up. Therefore I could not ignore all responsibility and routine. Shame. Dance classes and grocery shopping does tend to eat into sewing time.
I do have a lovely stack of fabric to show you though. I never told you that I won something in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day. I thought I would wait until you could see what my prize was. It's a good one, and the label on the stack says it very well indeed.
This gorgeous win of Stof Pure fabrics came from Erin - Billy Button Design. If you haven't visited her blog you should do. Erin is lovely, been part of the wonderful group that makes Mouthy Stitches such a success and makes fab things. What's not to like?
