My sewing space is a mess right now. But, it's kind of a pretty mess. All my favorite fabrics strewn about.
I decided to finally cut into some of my Heather Ross Far, Far Away fabrics I've been hoarding. After I saw volume III of FFA I decided to stop waiting for future lines and just make a quilt with the first two lines, which are my favorites. I am going with charm squares, but some pieces will be the size of 2 or 3 squares to allow for towers and beds stacked high with mattresses. The top portion of the above photo is pieced and below it are the additional fabrics I am auditioning.
This is going to be the blue, gray & orange quilt. I couldn't quite mix them together, although I know other people have. I might make a third quilt that is just a crazy mix. This one is probably going to be charm squares, too. Or I might frame the blocks, not sure yet. But this one is on the way back burner. After all, there are more pressing things:
Three out of twelve ain't bad, but it's not so good. I'm going to buckle down and get it finished next week. That's the plan. We'll see if it happens.
