Summer Sampler Top
I am hoping to convince Arlene to try something new and funky on this one. I have been scouring the internet and looking at different patterns, and found a few that really appeal to me, hopefully I can get Arlene to see that appeal too! I think I have also found the back. In my stash I have this piece of limey green with mulitcolored and sized dots and fairies. All the colors are in the quilt front, so it will be perfect and an opportunity to use up 5 meters of fabric!!! Yeah. I love that.
I have to make some bigger dents in the stash though. Its getting a bit out of control. At last count I have four scrap bins under the table, and another two in the hall closet. I need to be more like Rita at Red Pepper Quilts with regards to my scraps. She does the make the most divine baby quilts, all out of scraps. Lots of inspiration, so perhaps one night this week I will dump a bin and see what I can do!
