Finishing one project & starting another
- that’s what seems to happen around here. a. lot!
I've downloaded the recent "mom & pop" quilt pattern from Joy @themakingsofjoy Her pattern is delightfully written, and filled with quilt techniques and tips for different colourways and cohesive scrap beauties. This quilt has a real retro vibe about it and there are four design options in the one pattern, from using yardage to different scrappy versions.
I'm making the 'cohesive mix & match' option for the most part. The mix&match process looks like a scrappy quilt, even though it’s made of FQs, but I am modifying it slightly.
I'm going for a whispery palette, starting with the pastel 'Lotus Leaf' print, an early Kaffe fabric. Then I grabbed more fat quarters from my stash to make up a pretty bundle of fabrics to go with the pastel vibe. Do you like making bundles from your stash too?
Diving right in today,
hope you enjoy these in-progress photos too . . .
- and a little mixing and matching
Yes 💕 I'm liking where this is going.
