I have several "quilty things" I ought to be working on, but because this is a holiday weekend, I decided to not do anything I was "supposed" to do; I thought I'd play a little bit instead.
I've had this project in mind for awhile--ever since I saw a similar American Jane pattern in a magazine and I bought a 60 degree ruler. I started with a Mary Engelbreit border print. Next, I dug down deep in my scrap drawer and pulled out all the scraps I thought would coordinate with it that were of a decent size. Then I supplemented my scraps with a couple other pieces of fabric from my stash. And before long, I was cutting strips, sewing strip sets, and cutting 60 degree triangles. Here's what the pieces look like so far:
I was having so much fun with these, I didn't even realize how late it was getting until the only thing on TV seemed to be infomercials. Now it's time to go to bed, but I'm sure I'll get back to it tomorrow and I'll keep you posted on my progress!
I hope you're enjoying your weekend too--Remember to take time to play! Thanks for stopping in.
