|Cut and prep|
I bought this material that was VERY on sale and I loved the bright colours! I was not sure what I was going to use it for and a while back I had bought a jelly roll book! So.... strip I did!! LOL They are very busy materials, so it did not quite take on the look of the on in the book. That one was made with all burgundy and tan materials, so there was a LOT of contrast. but I like the kind of wacky way mine went together.
|Just a hint|
It was a very simple pattern. just sewing the strips together and cutting squares and then cutting them in half and sewing them back together! Honeyman kept asking why I was cutting apart after I had already sewn. He is so funny! Also asking what I was making it for! Well heck if I know! I was making it because I like the pattern, I bought 1/4 yard of each of the fabrics and only paid $.25 for each cut! Why the heck not! It is like practicing!
The book calls for a simple white 2 inch border, but I think I want more than that. So I am kind of stuck with what to do next. This kind of looks like the easter bunny threw up, so maybe I will see if I can't find an easter print! Or I might just go back to the store and, wait for it, buy more material! ha! OK twist my arm I might just do that anyway! The pattern was called Playmates, but I might (if I can get it finished) use this as a donation for a friend who is having a benefit for her sister who is going through chemo for breast cancer. So I thought Twister Sister sounded better! I am a nut I know it!
What are you working on? Today I am finishing up my two blocks for the swaps I am in! Finish it up Friday, right!! have a great weekend!
