It's Wednesday! Last week I told you about my new project, the triangles revisited quilt. I was wishing for a dedicated sewing room so that I could have a design wall.... dreamer that I am. So, of course I threw one up again, I am sure my roommate will be glad to see the tail end of my sewing madness...
It was so awesome to see the fabric up on the wall, I am loving all of them together.
While I was "pasting" on the wall, I left some blank spaces to see what some more solids would look like in the design. I liked it, so cut some neutral triangles and put them in the "holes". Kind of like making sure all the holidays are colored in - at least that's what my elementary school teachers said "make sure you color all your holidays in". What the heck does that mean anyway? Does holiday translate to lazy? I am just not sure. Anyway, I digress, back to the quilt (focus Adrienne!),
I am still not sure about how big I am going make this puppy. But I am starting with 22 triangles across and I have layed out 16 rows. We shall see how that goes, and I will likely add to it, since I have a stack of triangles left over (or maybe I might do something on the back...hmmmmm).
I think I told you that I am in the middle of getting ready for a move to my home Province, Nova Scotia. Pretty excited about this, but it does mean I am having some downtime in the sewing area since moving "stuff" is keeping my pretty busy. My biggest worry though is that for a whole month my things will be in a storage locker. Oh no! Of course, there is no way that I am going to be separated from my sewing machine, and maybe a few key tools, but I will be separated from my fabric stash (insert sad music here). So I am prepping projects in advance. My husband thinks this is a tad crazy, but then understands that I will not be in my happy place if I am not quilting. Good husband.
All of that being said, as I took the triangles off the wall, I have labelled them for sewing by row and now they are packed and ready for sewing. I am prepping another project as well so that I will have lots to keep me occupied for that month of stash absence. I hope my fabric won't miss me too much.
So, that's my story for today. What are you working on?
