We spent almost two weeks at our cabin last month. It was really nice but it did rain most days.
I brought a variety of fabrics so's to have flexibility in projects depending on my mood...
After the fun I had with the Halloween O's blocks made from 10" layer cake fabs ( read about that here) I decided to try the O's in some vintage layer cake fabs. I figured the layer cakes would provide a lot of variety without having to lug a boat full of fabrics on vacation.
These blocks are fun and easy to make but at 8" I've still got a ways to go before I have enough for a bed sized quilt. And I did find that the colors in the layer cakes only went so far, so back to my stash I must go!
After the vintage fun wore off I switched to this Dr. Seuss Fabrics. Again I relied on a charm packet to give me some portable variety and with two yards of grey I whipped up a kid quilt. These fabrics are so cute!!
As a third alternate fab source I brought my basket of Batik scraps. I had fun resorting the basket and decided on an easy monochrome color scheme of greens...
This is as far as I got on that, but then I grabbed all the browns and quick made this small lap quilt.
The quilt project for wheel chair bound vets asks for quilts that are 36" x 48". I had just enough brown scraps to make this. Nothing fancy but it will make a nice lap quilt.
Funny thing is...after all that intensive sewing I've been home almost 2 weeks and I've hardly sewn a stitch! I guess I'm waiting for it to rain?!
Have a Great week!
