Lately I’ve been in the mood to just play…instead of working on things I already have started….I decide to start something new. I had a cute charm pack just waiting to be used.
The charm pack is called Simply Color by Vanessa Christenson of V and Co for Moda. Lots of fun modern prints.
I was experimenting and ended up with floating blocks…..I like them!
The background fabric is a tan and white print…very subtle.
Leftovers…….for some reason I just can’t throw them away….when I sewed the corners on the blocks in my table runner I ended up with a bunch of HSTs – half square triangles. Once I squared them up they were only 1 3/4 inch blocks.
I started sewing them together and actually made 4 identical blocks that I put together for a pillow. Very busy and I’m going to say very Modern!
The pillow is only 14 inches and I just did some straight line quilting on it. I seem to be on a pillow roll lately…..one of these days I should get them all out and take a picture….that would be interesting!
Yesterday I did some much needed weeding in my flower beds. We have been getting tons of rain and of course the weeds just love that. It was humid and lots of gnats drove me crazy. The sun is shining right now but another storm is supposed to be heading our way. I guess I had better go do some more weeding……then I’ll spend time in my quilt room when it storms.
