I started a new quilt on Tuesday. Do you read Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict? She is running a 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop. In addition she is offering a quilt along to make a Trip Around the World quilt. It only takes 10" of fabric -- well times 16 fabrics. Several days in I decided I could probably come up with some fabric for this.
Next thing I know I have 18 fabrics out. I eliminate two and I'm cranking out 2 1/2" strips on my Go Cutter before I really think about what I'm doing. (And if you believe that whopper I have a bridge I can sell you too!) I used 5 Christmas fabrics and filled in with light, medium and dark fabrics to get to 16. I started sewing the first strip set. It's going to be a little longer than I thought to catch up. Plus I still want to get my weekly goals accomplished. So this strip set may not see its other 3 mates for a bit. I'll keep you posted. Here's what it looks like minus the three lightest fabrics shown on the left above. (And the strip on the far right is showing the wrong side as it is pinned, ready to sew.)
It's time to get to the studio or I won't get anything done today! I'm linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday and Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? on Friday if it becomes available. It's on the same blog as the Christmas in July event. I'll be taking some time later today to do a little blog hopping to see what's going on.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
