Before I left for holidays last month, I showed the gorgeous Philip Jacobs fabrics I had purchased. When I got home I wanted to dive into making a very quick and easy quilt....I admit, I was having withdrawals after three whole weeks with no stitching whatsoever!
newest releases, as well as a couple of old favourites like the banded poppy), with some Kaffe shot cottons a couple of Kona cottons, and one Amy Butler solid.
Once cut into 4 inch squares, I then played around with them on my design wall. Having the design wall up permanently in my house has been a wonderful tool. To be able to play around with different designs, and watching different patterns emerge, even simple ones, is a lot of fun.
This first design is interesting, and I might visit this one again another time, I quite like the almost zig zag effect....
While we were away we mainly visited family and friends, very little sightseeing was done, so I really don't have many other photo's of our trip to show. I did however see this little guy calmly strolling across a park in the midst of suburbia one fine morning (not what you expect to see in suburbia). By the time I jumped out of the car with my camera in hand he had started to climb this tree...isn't he cute?
