How are you going this week? As far as quilting goes for me, I'm a bit uninspired. Perhaps it's because the boys are home on school holidays and I haven't had much quilting time. Perhaps it's because during these school holidays, I have been at work a lot. Perhaps it's because I'm just a bit tired at the moment. Perhaps it's because my tiny little sewing room is a HUGE HUGE MESS!! I walk into my room, look around, walk out again and shut the door! Perhaps a little spring cleaning is in order to help bring my quilting spark back?
My Denyse Schmidt fabric is still on the brew, so not much to show there yet. I have however made a small start on the gorgeous IceCream quilt from Kaffe's latest book.
Kaffe's IceCream Quilt
from his Quilt Romance book
I thought I could find enough white/pastel fabrics in my cupboard....and I was right.
These will fit the bill very nicely thank you very much. Although in my unispired state it took me a long time to choose these 14 fabrics, and I may yet change some of them!!
I cut and sewed up a few rows over the weekend, but that's as far as I got. Perhaps next week I will be able to do some more. Even though I am generally a perfectionist, I am just going with the flow of this one and not being too concerned about it being exactly straight. If it works it works, if not, it will have character!!! I will be handquilting it just like Kaffe did, I love that large-quilting-stitch-homestyle look. Yummy! (Just like icecream!).
PS: Macadamia nut icecream is my favourite...what's yours? xo
