We are very much in school holiday mode.  The mornings are short, the afternoons and evenings are endlessly long, especially now that we've welcomed daylight savings. 

I am feeling a little off task so far this week, but I have finally managed to turn on the sewing machine to commence a new project.  I love my stash of solid fabric and probably should make an effort to work with them more often.   After much fabric auditioning I have finally settled on three solid colors that I hope will work together to complete my vision.

  • Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Coral (red)
  • Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Canary (yellow)
  • The solid green fabric is from stash, and I am not able to match it with any of the swatches on my Kona Color Card. The closest Kona Color is Candy Green.  

The rotary cutter has been busy ~ although I don't generally like to cut too far in advance when I have not  completely finalized "the plan" in my head.   I am going to make more blocks and then will contemplate the layout.   So far, so good.

I hope you are having a good sewing week!


  1. Rita wings it. Exciting! Can't wait to see what evolves.

  2. Great colors! I'm eager to see what you do.

  3. oh seriously yum colour combo - my problem - how on earth do you decide on just three colours!

  4. These colors are so bright and happy! Can't wait to see where it goes.

  5. yum, i really like your color choices!

  6. they are so bright and vibrant they remind me of the colors in my daughters recent painted quilt block project.

  7. Those colors are beautiful! Love how vibrant the blocks are, looks like sunshine.
