I woke up this morning feeling a bit under the weather but since I work from home I decided to truck on through the day. About an hour and a half into my work day I gave up and went back to bed with the dogs. 🙂
After my brief siesta I was feeling a bit better and like I should get some long standing chores done around the house. Naturally, I decided that should be to cut up a bunch of fabric for some projects I’ve had in mind. Here’s a shot of the pile of fabric on my cutting table. Some of it is recently acquired – the holiday prints, OSU fabrics and the halloween prints while the rest is for a big quilt I have planned for our bed/the couch and some Christmas gifts.
First up, I cut up the fabric for a Halloween table runner that clearly isn’t getting done for this year’s Halloween. 🙂 Then I started in on my quilt. We’re calling it the 1080 quilt because it’s going to have 1,080 – 2.5″ squares in it. Half will be linen and the other half will be from the Oh Deer! line by MoMo. You can see a bit of the quilt fabrics in the top left of this shot.
I still haven’t decided what I want to make with the OSU and coordinating prints. Whatever I do make will go to the boy. I just haven’t decided the best project to showcase them yet. I also dug into my WIPs bin that has been sitting around for over 2 years now (which makes them not exactly current WIPs) and began cutting up the fabric for some liners for our sideboard. This project was intended to be my learning project for different kinds of quilting. Heh. It’ll still serve its purpose I’ll just probably feel more confident about my stitching. 🙂 By the end of the afternoon my cut pile looked like this:
Not pictured is the scrap pile. I really need to come up with a better way for storing my scraps. I also will clearly need to make some very scrappy quilts in the next year or so to clean out my closet. 🙂
When we were out shopping for checker flag fabric over the weekend I stumbled on these awesome Halloween prints at the local quilt shop.
Any ideas on what to make? I have 1 yard of each print and the top print has a really large repeat.
