A new project

After yesterday's cleaning, I cut out the fabric for a new quilt.
I know, I know - I have many, many WIPs but this one is for someone specific and it was really due at the end of September.
It's time to hop to it.
Don't you love these prints?
My latest project
And then I started sewing and either the pattern cutting instructions are wrong or I'm an idiot.
The jury is still out...

Pin It!

That is a fantastic group of fabric! I love the colors and the way the patterns work. Can't wait to see it done!

Jodie said...

when in doubt blame the instructions!!

Dee said...

The fabrics are fantabulous!
When I mess up...I mean, when the instructions aren't clear, I mean really!...I set everything aside, go have a hot chocolate and ponder the mysteries of life. Then I go back, mess up again...I mean, the instructions aren't any clearer...have a nap...try again...LOL

I hope you get it figured out soon 'cause I can't wait to see the quilt!

I'm sure the instructions must be flawed. Dee's plan of action is right on the money, but I might add a cookie with the hot chocolate:)

Beautiful fabrics!

Jackie said...

Definitely not an idiot. You are very talented. I just love the fabrics. I can't wait to see what you will be making.

I do love those prints! Great colors too! I hate it when the instructions are wrong, especially the cutting steps, my least favorite part (cuz I always screw up). You're a pro, so it must not be you.

Super yummy fabric! Is it all a certain collection or just a mish mash that you brought wonderfully together?? I would love to know - not that I plan on copying you or anything...I mean, uh... maybe I kinda want to...

Love your fabric grouping!! I am sure you will figure out the pattern! I have had two patterns with errors in them in the last two weeks.

Beautiful fabrics... love the saturated colours. I'm guessing the instructions are wrong!

Shari said...

These are beautiful fabrics - and I'm pretty sure you are not an idiot so must be the instructions...

Uh-oh. I'm putting my money on the sewing instructions!
