Just because I need ANOTHER hobby... I decided to try out quilting. Ryan was voting for woodworking as my new hobby, but since I already have the fabric, quilting won. I know I mentioned it in the last post but here is a little update... There are now two quilts in the works.
Our model for the day: Orange!
Don't you love this fabric? I have pieces of it throughout and I think I am going to back the quilt with it.
Sushi has also been helping by taking daily naps in my scraps.
A while back I saw a vintage quilt at my friend Kaari's house all made up of fabric yoyo's. It's more of a decorative quilt than a useful one but I loved it so I'm making my own.
To practice making yoyo's I made this headband.
Some lady told me her son would like it because it had buttons... not sure if thats a compliment, but I'll take it…
Now I've moved on to the quilt. I didn't make these ones, but this is what it will look like when it's all done. I guess they were really popular in the 20's-40's.
I want them all to be the same size so I bought a yoyo maker. It also gives me something to do while watching TV.
This is my progress so far!
I have a feeling this is going to be an ongoing project. 70 down... at least 330 to go.
