I'm so excited - I'm finally getting around to making a pieced quilt for my daughter. I actually bought all the fabric, months ago during a Fabricland sale, with the plan to make her a strip quilted cross-body purse. But she needs/wants a quilt in Queen size more.
Her bedroom is decorated in black & white with beautiful apple green walls.
Mmmm, what would look best.........................
This is how far I got. You can see I mis-calculated the last strip length. I forgot to add in the width of each new added strip. I don't have a lot to play with. Remember, I bought this fabric for a bag. Oh well, back to the drawing board & fabric store! I think I'll check out Ikea for the backing & maybe some of the top fabric. They're fabric is cheap and very pretty, from what I've seen on line - I hope I'm not disappointed with the real thing. Has anyone else bought Ikea fabric?
Meanwhile.....I'm going forward with the strip quilted purse for her!! It's modeled after her Coach bag.
I decided on this - hope she likes it!
I decided to add a pocket to the lining. This is when I misplaced my brand new, awesome disappearing marking pen!!
I was thusly forced to use the crappy blue chalk marker instead....I hate it because it crumbles & the line is never completely accurate.
So anyway, that's as far as I got.
I have to pick up a slightly longer zipper, this one's about an inch or two short. Or I could hunt through my enormously disorganized stash!! Something I really would like to get at!
I'm not a horder, I just have a lot of stuff I need and or things I can make use of some day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
