I've managed to whittle my pile of W.I.P.'s down to nothing, with a number of finishes this month and also finding a new home for some orphan blocks. It's time to start something new! I just finished unrolling and sorting my Comma jelly roll (incidentally, I just noticed on the tag that Moda Fabrics are on Facebook and Twitter before I am....and I'm okay with that. :)
I love this fabric line, but let's be honest - it's a bit crazy busy and doesn't really suit my decor, so this is what I'm thinking. We often have to stand outside watching our oldest son play soccer in the winter - it can be cold, rainy, windy, foggy, etc. The only thing it wouldn't be is snowy because then the fields close. So I need a soccer quilt/car quilt/out-and-about quilt!! :) My plan for this jelly roll is a version of Elizabeth Hartman's Roller Rink quilt (see one of her versions here) from the book, Modern Patchwork, probably using shades of gray for the frames, maybe Kona Coal & Iron?
One more thing this week - yesterday I sewed my two bee blocks for September, for the do.Good Stitches 'Joy' circle. Mary Catharine asked for low volume star blocks and this is what I came up with. I haven't done low volume before so I hope I got it right. The solid gray is Kona Ash, which is coming across a bit darker in the photos than it actually is in person.
Have a great week everyone. We're enjoying some beautiful sunny fall weather so I absolutely can't complain!
