I participated in a 10" Kona square swap. I now have 64 pieces of lovely Kona fabric in lots of luscious colors. Now, what shall I do with them? I am leaning towards using this pattern which I discovered (and subsequently purchased) after reading Nancy's blog post.
All solids might be very cool. I am also thinking about just randomly choosing stacks of fabric and cutting them them in the traditional "stack and whack" style. Another thought is a zig zaq quilt because I do love making half square triangles! I will, no doubt, stew a while on this before picking up a rotary cutter.
Since we working on one painting project over the weekend and the kitchen was already a wreck, I decided to paint more. If you care to see, I posted that project over on my other blog.
Em is making a sundress while she is here. Did you know that sizing on women's dress patterns is pretty much what it was 30 years ago and not the "new" sizing in ready made? Emily wears a 2 or a 4 so we picked up a multi-sized pattern. We got it out and started looking at the pattern pieces. I then decided to actually read the size info. Ummm - if we cut out a size 4 from the pattern pieces Emily would not be able to get into the dress with a shoe horn and a quart of grease. Turns out in pattern sizes, Emily is a 10. Thankfully, we had enough fabric on hand to cut the 10. More on that as we progress!
