[workinprogress]

Thank you for stopping by!  I have some pictures to share with you of what I have been working on this week.


Rather than tidy up my sewing space and fold fabric from my last project I have instead cut a whole bunch of squares (4.5 inch squares) and stitched up another quilt top - this is otherwise known as productive procrastinating, although that happy mountain of fabric still needs folding. 


This quilt is much easier than the last, but these simple squares continue to make me rrr-ridiculously happy.  I love the traditional patchwork look and enjoy immersing myself in fabric play; an anyone can do project and  completely stress free.  It was exactly what I needed this week.


It's all about the fabric.   As well as the many Japanese import fabrics I have used floral prints by designers such as Pam Kitty Morning (from the Pam Kitty Love collection), and fabrics from Bake Sale by Lori Holt.  I have also mixed in basic stash prints - like gingham fabric and the occasional dot fabric.  


More soon.
Rita
