My friends are getting married this Saturday and I am in the process of making orange clutches for all the bridesmaids (myself included). Unfortunately I haven't taken any photos of my progress yet, but this is one of the fabric and her shower invitation. We had the hardest time finding anything in orange, and then one day I stumbled across this suede upholstery fabric in the clearance section at Joann's. Sweet! I'm just going to turn the wrong side out, which has a shiny sateen sort of finish. Brilliant, I know :P
Warm Cool Quilt-Along
HSTs are done, and I've spent a good deal of time moving them all around to get the right look. I only used 8 prints, and for some reason (I think I thought it would give it more variance) I made two different types of HSTs from each print. It just ended up making my life difficult when it came time to do the layout, because trying to find a pattern to repeat was just too much for my brain to handle.
I wanted to tweak the layout just a smidge and ended up going with this one. Now that I've been looking at these pics for a few days , I may decide to go with something closer to the first pic. I dunno yet...
I'm calling it that because it reminds me of the illustrator Mary Engelbreit. My mom is a fan and has had illustrated magnets on the fridge for years. I started this one a while back and haven't made any progress for a while. I have all the blocks finished (80 total, 20 shown) and will eventually get around to finishing it.
That's all for now! I'm hanging up my lab coat and heading home on my bike. That's right, I rode my bike to work today! Hopefully I'll be able to keep this up...
