Well I’m happy to report I finished the little snowman mini. The binding was a bit of a bear, using 1-1/2″ strips, but I do like the narrow little border. I’m not sure where this mini is headed, whether it will stay with me or be gifted.
My task for the day is to get these fabrics washed and prepped for a wedding quilt. Normally I don’t wash my quilt fabrics, but the blue batik mixed with the lighter colors is making me just a little nervous. I want to make sure the batik won’t run, so washing it is!
The wedding quilt will be large HSTs using the Vast pattern from Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle by Jeni Baker. The bride wanted the above colors based on a quilt of that pattern she saw on Pinterest. Admittedly I really wouldn’t have needed the pattern. For some reason, I thought the Pinterest picture was from the book and might have some info on the fabric line. It wasn’t the same; however, I think I managed to follow the color line with the fabrics I chose. The book would be a great addition to the library of a beginning quilter, so I may gift it at some point.
I hope to pull another UFO out of my stash and work on that today too. We’ll see how much I get done.
I’m linking up today with Katy Quilts and
