I have been having a great sew-y week! I tackled this pile of Lush Uptown
and made a Charm Pack Cherry Quilt (from Fat Quarter Shop) top.
I really like this pattern. A modern twist on a traditional nine-patch, it is simple to pull together. I ended up making twice the blocks called for in the recipe so that I could have a bigger top.
I took this project to camp with me this week. My dreams of a Feather Weight continue as I lug machine et al to locations other than my sewing room. I used a little child labour to help count out the squares (nephews are good to have around).
I added Kona Seafoam to the prints. I am not sure I am completely sold on the color, I feel like I want something with more punch, but it does give the whole top a soft earthy feel which is also good. Maybe I will get wild with the back or the binding...
You may notice that this top is not all quite together, and that's because I have decided to QYAG, so I will attached blocks and rows as I go. This baby is just a little too big for an all over quilt job.
Getting this top done was my July Goal for ALYOF - Yay Me! and since I will continue to work on it this week, it gets WiP Wednesday action too at Freshly Pieced and Needle & Thread Network!
What are you working on this week? Tell me all the gory details!
Thanks for stopping in
