I didn't end up doing Easy street this year like I had originally wanted to do. But I am doing Celtic Solstice. And even though I haven't had enough time to be in my sewing room much, I have managed to find enough time to start and have a good start on this quilt!
Bonnies colors were Neutrals, Yellow/gold, oranges, greens & blues. I do not have a lot of yellow/gold or oranges, so I have changed my colors.
My neutrals will be neutral.
My yellow/gold will be pink
My oranges will be purple
My greens will be greens
My blues will be blues.
Although I don't have much in the way of neutrals! I will have to see if I can find some remnants at Jo-Ann's.
I love this quilt block. I was recently browsing and found this lovely quilt block. It was not posted with a pattern because it was on a quilt block a day (for a year) calendar (what?! why haven't I gotten this?!) So I had some math to do on my own. I decided to use HST for the bottom, so that was fun to figure out the math!
I have been very busy with school, and when I finally go to my sewing room I just sit there. Last night I cleaned up a little bit. But I sat in my room looking at my (lovely) fabric (and I even got SO much more on black Friday) and I just feel overwhelmed, I didn't know what to do. Things have been so crazy I don't think I will have time to machine quilt all the Christmas quilts that I have to do. (long arming is no big deal, and I definitely prefer that to machine quilting!). But where I have used the long arm had a fire, so they no longer have a machine I can use :(
I participated in a Kate Spain 5" block (charm/nickel whatever you want to call it). And I think I have decided what I will do with that. That definitely has helped my motivation, but then school gets in the way!
So here is to having some time to sew over Winter break!!!
