Here is the beginning of a project that I started this weekend. To continue with my "use what you have" for March, I decided to dig way down in my stash... These are fabrics that I purchased before Sofia was born -- now that would be going on 10 years. If you're wondering about the colors -- they are supposed to represent the colors in Nicholas' Lego Bionicle collection. I was going to make him a quilt -- but then Sofia happened... :-) Anyhow, I found a pattern over at the ModaBakeShop blog courtesy of KarrieLyne from freckledwhimsy.com (such a cute name). The pattern is easy, but makes a big visual impact -- so I thought I would give it a try.
Here are the fabric strips that I cut.
This small square is made up of 15 separate pieces sewn together.
And, of course, something for Nicholas just wouldn't be right if it didn't have a little bit of red added to it!
It doesn't look like much, yet, but I only gave myself 2 hours on Saturday afternoon to play with this. Now, that I have the idea in my head, I think the rest of it will go a bit more quickly. This will eventually be a pillow. I would like to also make a matching quilt for Nicholas -- but that will have to wait until after the quilt for my bed.
to be cont'd...
