While I was waiting for the rest of my Kona Aqua to arrive to start on my Owly baby quilt, I decided to dive right into a project I've had on my mind for some time now using my Drunkards Path Accuquilt GO! die. Ever since appliqueing this pillow, I thought "hey I could piece this using the drunkards path die." Its nice to finally see this idea coming together in fabric.
Most of Saturday was spent pulling fabrics, and turning that crank to cut the pieces, while Sunday was spent designing the arrangement and finally beginning to stitch some blocks together. I am so happy that I had no intentions of giving this one away when I started it, because I'm loving where its headed. I really forced myself to step out of my comfort zone color-wise, and I think I must do so more often!
Now that my Kona Aqua has finally arrived perhaps I'll give that owly baby quilt some love this week, but for now, it continues to sit in a pile, cut and patiently waiting to be pieced.
Before wrapping up this weeks post, I have to give a shout out to my Aunt Linda who just sent me a picture of her first completed quilt top! We took our first Joann's sewing/quilting lessons together a year or two ago, and this is her first completed top all on her own. I just love it to pieces, all those bright fun colors, and on point to boot? Just perfect. She says that the points don't line up, but from my view, its lookin' pretty awesome!
