A short and sweet post this week! Our sweet little pup is doing so well and I was actually able to sneak into my quilt room a few minutes at a time this past week 🙂 . He is such a little joy and I enjoy cuddling with him and have actually pulled him out of his bed to sleep in my lap instead…such bad habits….hahahaha!
I purchased some more fabrics for my collage quilts and have been enjoying cutting out more motifs. My little tin is obviously NOT going to work to hold all these shapes!
I think I’m going to buy a bin with separate compartments so I can sort the motifs into themes and sizes….if YOU do collage quilts, how do you handle all your cutouts?
I did play around a little bit with a “sort-of” collage that I designed. I thought it would be fun to start with a watering can and then add flowers and butterflies. This was the result: I haven’t decided yet how I’m going to fasten all those shapes to the background….I might free-motion quilt around all the motifs, or maybe grid-quilt all over….I’ll have to think this over for a bit and see what inspires me!
And finally, I am doing an Irish Chain sew along with Amber from Gigi’s thimble. Luckily she is taking it really slow and that has been good for me. I am doing a scrappy blue and white version and have my fingers crossed that it will look good!
Alright, I promised you short and sweet and it is. Have a great week and as always~happy creating!
