|Lars Meets Kaffe Revised: Math Is Beautiful, 54" X 54"|
|Lars's Doodle and My First EQ7 Design|
Not only is this a math themed fabric, but it's the kind of math Lars was studying last year when he was doodling quilts in his notebook. (In fairness to Lars, he did a great job in math this year and he claims that he created this doodle while he was sitting in assembly for the school talent show).
So it looks like I'm making another quilt with bright fabrics against a black background. Although Lars's doodle could easily become a repeated quilt block, I decided to make it a one-block quilt with nice, large pieces to show off large scale print fabrics. Also, I still have several long-term quilts in the works right now and wanted to mix in something quick and easy.
Speaking of the Big Haul quilt projects, I did manage to complete two more pineapple log cabin blocks for my California King bed quilt:
|14 Pineapple Log Cabin Blocks Finished, 22 (or 28) Blocks To Go|
But I haven't touched my Butterflies and Bear Paws quilt, my Jingle quilt, or my Frankenwhiggish Rose needle turned applique project. Those are languishing on the shelf. Meanwhile I'm itching to start on my Dear Jane blocks using these fabrics:
|Fabrics for my Soon-To-Start Dear Jane Quilt|
|Pretty Potent Echinachea in Preppy, Cotton Voile from Westminster Fabrics|
I love the fabric print, though -- it reminds me of something I'd see in ready to wear from Boden or Anthropologie. So far all I have done is purchased thread and notions and prewashed the fabrics. Wish me luck!
Both of my boys are volunteer counselors for Vacation Bible School at church this week, so I'm hoping to get a lot of sewing done in the mornings. Ideally I'd like to get my skirt made and also get my Math Is Beautiful quilt at least cut out and ready to go. I might piece that one on my Vintage Singer Featherweight machine so I can alternate between that and another paper pieced pineapple block on my Bernina 750 QE without having to change my machine setup (I like to piece with lightweight Aurifil 50/2 cotton thread and a 70 Microtex needle, but I've got the B 750 threaded up with heavier 50/3 cotton Mettler thread and a size 90 quilting needle for paper piecing. That gives me better perforation of the paper that I'll need to tear away at every seamline, and a stronger seam to withstand the stress of tearing paper away).
I'm linking up with Design Wall Monday and Main Crush Monday. Have a great week!
