Some Saturday Sewing

Master 2 (almost 3) was out and about today so I had some time alone. Of course, I spent it sewing. Something I haven't done all week.

I got this shabby chic baby quilt top finished.

Polaroid 9 patch block for Fiona at Finding Fifth. She is in the QCA Bee # 1 group and this is her block for February. She is going to use these blocks to make a quilt to donate to a child who has lost everything in the recent bushfires here in Australia. I'm not in her Bee group but as I want to do more charity sewing this year, and I have lots of polaroid blocks from the Say Cheese! Polaroid Block Swap, I decided to make her a block. You can find her tutorial here.

Last night I was looking at all things Nightshade online, looking for some quilt inspiration for these fabric remnants I was given (that's right....given) by my local quilt shop. So after I packed up and was waiting for Master 2 to return I had a bit of fabric play.

I also have some of the other prints to put with this. At this stage I'm thinking of doing random improv blocks of different sizes and then just filling the spaces between with a tone on tone black print. What would you do with it?

  1. It probably sounds irrational, considering the intentional large scale motif, but I'd probably cut the fabric all up into 2.5" blocks and then scramble it all up, adding in some of the lavender/ teal solids from the line. I think that ornate black and white would be interesting augmented, especially when you saw some random eye looking up at you, haha, or that pirate eye patch!
