If you want to see what I am referring to, take a look at the link below. Beautiful pictures of quilts in progress posted for all to see. Wonderful.
And here is more local link: The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild - how cool is that!?
It seems to fit in with my desire to build a 'fabric stash' and outfit my tiny sewing room full of ric rac, cottons and wicker baskets filled with colorful inspiration!And often, start projects that aren't completed for months! but truthfully, I always do end up completing what I have started, just not immediately. Other inspirations just call me away.....
I simply let the fabrics be my inspiration - it is so fun. I have this lovely collection of 'cherry-print' fabrics and haven't really come up with a pattern that makes me want to start cutting. But I love the 'squares' that I see in the Modern quilts, not quite log cabin but they really do showcase the prints. So that is what I have chosen for this project. I love the bright happy colours.
And yes, I do have a sewing room of my own to work in, but as I get up 'ridiculously' early (5am usually..... hey I am middle-aged!) I was worried that the noise would disturb Hub - you see my sewing room is upstairs across from our bedroom. So I thought I would bring down all of these colorful fabrics and spread them out all over the kitchen island. Besides the coffee is closer this way!
