Oh, it feels so good to start getting this done again! I can't believe how long it has taken to get myself and the kids resettled from our recent trip. Right before the trip I had a couple of people ask for specific quilts, and it's bothering me that I haven't made better progress on them. No more. It's time to get to work; start cracking the whip on myself!
Last week I made some crazy good progress on my SIL's t-shirt quilt. It's the first I've made, but I love the idea and she was kind/brave enough to let me use some of her t-shirts to 'experiment'. I am so excited about how this is going to look. I've done a bunch of research to figure out the best layouts and what interfacing to use, etc.
Cut, iron, repeat. Repeat. Repeat. You get the idea. It's going well though. I have a lot of great pieces to work with, and am looking forward to figuring out how to lay everything out.
The other piece I'm working on is a Curious George quilt. This one was held up because of the difficulty I had finding fabric. Now that I've gotten to work on it, I'm so excited about how it's going to look.
I'm taking an approach similar to how I did my Dr. Seuss quilt. I have a basic pattern/idea that I want it to look like, but I'm kind of going with some of it also.
I am loving the colors, especially the green. I think I'm going to add some yellow as well, but just a little to break up the medium tones a little. I'm so excited just talking about it! I'm ready to get back to work!
Hope everyone is having a nice week. I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. I'm hoping these will turn into Finished Friday's soon enough.
