Well, it seems that the stars aligned and led me on a path to learn something new, but also to abandon something I was already doing!
First, the WIP I abandoned.....
it has really surprised me how quickly I packed this one away....
I had been dreaming of doing the 12 trees quilt using the Oakshott shot cottons I purchased just for this project!
For some reason, I wasn't really loving this.
Or maybe this is where the stars come in!
Two converging wins!
First, a magazine from Lynne at Lily's Quilts.....
The Marcelle Medallion on the cover has been a quilt I've wanted to do!
Then I won a FQ bundle of Carnaby Street from Fabricworm
It was just meant to be, right!
I used this print as a jumping off point for fabric colours...
and so I began
I won't rehash my troubles with inset seams because I'm completely over it!
I have added two borders...
I used those Oakshott shot cottons in the triangle border....love!
I'm not sure if I like the pink corners, but I'll leave it until I add the next border.
and this is why I abandoned everything else!!!
Who could blame me!
I do have to put this aside for a couple days to get Bee blocks done, but I can hardly wait to get back at it!
So, that's about it for WIP Wednesday.
I'll link up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced
Want a laugh??
Have a great sewing week!
