granny square quilt block tutorial, using 1.5" squares instead of 2.5".
my original stack, giving me 8 fabrics in each of 6 colors. For the background I used Quilter's Linen in I *think* natural (I must write done what colors get cut next time I buy some!). It's backed in an Amy Butler Soul Blossoms print and bound in the focus fabric from Domestic Bliss by Liz Scott. Don't look too close at the borders, it ended up a bit wonky! Thankfully, it looks great in it's new home next to the futon! :)
garment sewing pinterest board and found this Simple Bow Tie Top tutorial I had pinned a while back. This seemed the perfect opportunity to pick up some jersey and silk on sale. I came straight home and sewed it up. So simple, but I think the result is quite nice. I'm excited to wear it this summer! I can't resist things with giant bows!
Christina's Retro Flowers Quilt Pattern. I set my goal of one block and was amazed by how easily it came together. I don't have a lot of experience sewing curves, but this block made me feel like a pro! The techniques used to achieve precision are awesome. Now I'm thinking I might need to make a whole quilt! (Fabrics are Rawhide by Moda, Quilter's Linen in Natural, La Petite Ecole by French General)
