In the fall and winter, I love to sew. School started today so I am kicking off fall. I started a quilt.
I splurged and bought pre-cut blocks (a charm pack). The color are reflective of the rug, chairs and couch in the our living room. So…. it will be a throw quilt for our couch.
I am not afraid to mix and match fabrics.
I am sewing it on my antique machine. I think it sews better than the fancy computerized machine that I used to have.
Don’t worry, I didn’t use the blue thread on this project. I swapped it with beige thread before getting started.
It doesn’t look like much right now. It is not enough for a throw quilt. This will be the center of the quilt. Between each of these will be a sections of beige fabric. The beige fabric will also be around the edges and on the back.
Check back in the coming weeks for updates/progress. Sometimes I am quick at putting a quilt together and other times…. I am slow about it.
Here are some closes ups:
We have a little over a week yet until the holiday countdown begins. Hope everyone is ready to get crafting, cleaning and organized for the upcoming holidays. I am off to go and find some lunch.
