I'm still in the" I should be organizing, but I'm just too distracted" mode. This week, instead of putting fabric away, I decided that I really, really needed to try out that idea I had for a Christmas tree skirt. Yup, I'm thinking Christmas ;)
The idea was to make diamonds, and then to border them in different sizes so that I could then cut the tree hole without impacting the feature fabric diamonds themselves. yeah. Well, I'm not much for making detailed, scale drawings, preferring to dive right in. Gotta say, I really like how it turned out, so far, but this is not going to be a tree skirt! note to self - start with smaller diamonds for tree skirt - 6" strips result in a centre star that is 56" across
I've decided that I need a new Christmas quilt for the bed, but being the dive right in kinda gal I am, I now have to go shopping for more red and black fabric.
Today was a good mail day! I received my first order of Wonderfil Thread and I am really looking forward to some FMQ playtime!
|a nice variety|
I am so looking forward to trying out the various types - I've got some Konfetti, Invisafil, DecoBob, Metallic and some holographic, and now I've got my Thread charts so I can order with knowledge next time!
Happy, happy quilting!
