Just playin'

It seems like forever ago that I just sewed for fun that I can hardly stand it!  I figured it was about time:

Playin'

I bought a ton of Malka prints (a stitch n color) in February (I think it was February) and I made only one thing (that I gave away).  Remember this?

A "Stitch N Dye" look alike???

I loved that quilt, but it was a bit small for what I needed, so I thought it was time to get out the bunch again and some solids to go with them.  Here are the cools:


And here are some of the warms:


I just love making wonky log cabin blocks, don't you?  So far, I have 18 made and I think they will end up at 6 1/2 inches each.

Looks like my 18 warm blocks are done!

Next are the cools.....................wish me luck!

Wow those blocks all laid out like that actually looks like a beautiful ironing board cover! I love it.

Oh wow, have fun. Although I don't see how you couldn't with those fun fabrics. Play, girl!

Gale said...

Oh this is a great idea. I have a layer cake and a charm pack of Malka's fabrics that I've been saving because I wanted to use them for something special. This idea has got me thinking! Thanks

I really do not think you need any luck - maybe more time - more space - whatever. Enjoy it anyway.

They look great, and do you really need 'luck' ...I don't think so. Can't wait to see the cools.
