I think that the green tumblers in all shades
go nicely with this one.
what do you think?
I am learning so much by visiting my UFOs this way
1) Bonnie Hunter is right-dont be afraid to cut up the
stash and use it - when it is already cut
it is quick work to sew up and get er done
2) I do NOT need to buy anymore fabric-
I REPEAT....I DO NOT need to buy anymore fabric
I am finding that pieces I would not normally
choose, make good choices
this little green topper has everything in it
from homespun to florals to batik
and I LOVE it!
I also love that I have NO MORE of that batik, I
used up a block that was just sitting, I used up a 10 inch square
I wasnt liking
I used up some of my many tumblers
AND I LOVE IT!
3) size is important ......to an extent
even seams and trimming up help
to keep things in line
BUT...........if my runner is 14 2/3 inches
instead of say 15 who cares? unless it is fitting
into something and HAS to be that measurement
then it is no biggie..........
(whew! I used to really sweat that one)
4) I can look at problems with why I didnt finish
a project and then try and solve it in a different way
this little block was a "test" for a green wreath type block
well, when you sew at 4am and are not running on all 6 cylinders.........
little blue fans look green LOL
so I ended up ditching the project
(you know, I threw my own little hissy fit against the block!
SO THERE block. you sit and THINK about why you didnt work!)
then I found it again and said you know what?
it still is a cute little block and I need to do something with it
so grab a block you threw aside
look at it with new eyes
grab some fabrics you would NEVER pair with it
and see if something wonderful happens.......
this quilting stuff sure is fun!
