This week I procrastinated. Sorry, Stephanie and everyone else, for making you wait! I took on a organization project and thought I’d have time to whip this baby together later Sunday night. Unfortunately, my little 6 week old decided to teach me a lesson… don’t procrastinate!! It started off with me rushing again. I got one piece done and Lil’ D was up wanting attention. It wasn’t until I went back down that I realized I had only sewn one fabric piece to the paper, not the 2 (picture to the right). Rushing and no sleep = no good!
I did finally finish this morning and I LOVE how it turned out! My favorite color is blue but I love how the purples really look together on this one. This one has to be the most time consuming but they still are quick little (nap time) projects! I did have a few corners that didn’t make the end of the paper again. I’m hoping by my last square, I’ll not be doing that. But, in the end, it will be sewn together so hopefully no one will see those missing edges.
I decided last week to alternate background colors with a grey/white (this week and the first week) and more of a pure white (last week’s square). Hopefully this will turn out. I’m also thinking about adding an edging around each square before they’re sewn together. But getting them together isn’t for a few more weeks so I’ll have time to decide!
Next week I’ll be working my least favorite color. Orange. Check out my fabric choices and if you’re sewing along with us, feel free to share your work!
