Today I started working on the quilts for the twins using the new line of Far, Far Away fabrics - from my very favorite little fabric shoppe - Sew To Speak. I am adding some of the roses and linens in natural and yellow. Usually, when sewing half square triangles (which I am using for these quilts) I cut strips 7/8 inch larger than my finished size and lay the strips - right sides together - sew a 1/4 inch on both sides of the diagonal line which cuts the subsectioned squares. But for these fabrics I wanted to be sure I had the Owl and Pussycat in the triangle so I cut 6 inch squares and stitched on both sides of the diagonal.
Here is a little sneak peek.......
I love the texture of the linen and the subtle muted tones of this fabric - very different from my usual brights!
Molly has been stitching....she is working on a dresser scarf for G-MA! She made a terrific dish towel for me :)
Can't you just picture this in Anthropologie? Thanks Again, Molly!
