X Marks the Spot
I'm making progress on this one, but I think I will be picking out a second solid to help the Fandango pop. I am still deciding between white/ivory and maybe a peach color.
I am happy to see this one developing; more here!
I have a nice stack of new fabrics hanging out on my desk right now!! (also my first order from Burgundy Buttons -- I had a great experience with sale prices, fast shipping, and have already found myself stalking more of their fabrics!!)
The top one is Java Lotta Steam Cream -- love this name and the subtle darker brown swirls in the cream color!
The next ones are from Breakfast at Tiffany's -- I selected Elegance Party Dress, Classic Champagne, Lovely Party Dress, and Lovely Champagne (not sure which is which honestly and too lazy to look it up).
I started to grab a few other colors. Mostly pinks and the brown with tiny flowers for a background. By this time next week I am hoping this will be forming into another Tulip piece!
I also lucked out to find my teenie tiny sewing machine shop was having a sale on a few left overs (which I think will incorporate nicely into some of the ideas I have bubbling in my head). Can you believe these were $1 a yard? $1.
Most of the browns will be going toward Gingerbread House aprons -- doesn't that sound cute!! And I am putting together a yellow and blue wedding quilt as well which, I am thinking the yellow in the stack will make a nice binding.
AND... call me crazy, but I started playing with scraps... these just jumped on to my cutting mat..
...measuring 1 inch by 1 inch. very tiny!
...starting to play with arrangement
...and I am excited and happy with this sort of confetti quilt forming! Don't the little squares remind you of confetti?
Yup, that's right, Blooming Tulips is my first official finish of 2011! You can see more pictures and read the full story here.
Total WiP's: 3 -- finished one, added two!
