My labour day deadline is fast approaching, so I need to start making decisions. I keep flip flopping back and forth between a classic or a freeform look for the quilt.
Modern free form waves?
I started my shopping, as I’m committed to my beach blue colour scheme. Last Friday I biked up to Effiloché, a nearby store filled with neat fabrics (and knitting yarn as well). I browsed about and was happy to pick out a few blues. Then back at home I made an order with Sew Fresh Fabrics, one of my favorite Etsy fabric shops. Now I get to patiently wait for my package to arrive. Or maybe not 🙂 I think I’m going to start playing around a bit in anticipation.
For most major gift giving occasions I always make my sister a zipper pouch of sorts. She’s an artist so she’s always toting around supplies, so she wears out her pouches on a regular basis. For her birthday this year I made her one of these dumpling pouches, except hers was made using scraps from my black and white and red quilt, colours that are very much her. Of couse, I forgot to take a picture. Instead, I made a few more, this time made using purple scraps leftover from my rainbow charm swap fabrics.
They are made using a Keyka Lou/Michelle Patterns tutorial, that can be found here. Simple and cute, they sew up quickly.
