I was able to play a little with my Gypsy Kisses units!
I am coming along... I have it timed that I can make 2 every 15 minutes
but that is without interruptions.
I am really enjoying the process but I haven't decided if I will
make the large size that is in the Material Obsessions book or if
I will make a smaller version of the quilt.
I guess I will play it by ear.
I have already decided that I like the alternate fabric and that I will plan to use it as my
background fabric so that the "kisses" will kind of just float.
I stumbled upon a plastic shoe box full of half square triangles...
It was the last thing to be moved from the old house and put away.
I am so excited to see these little cuties!
A few years ago I was making La Playa
by Minick and Simpson and I used this line of fabric.
I must have went crazy to have so many leftover HST's!
I remember after the body of the quilt was
together and seeing all of these leftovers...
I had a little plan in my head stirring but that is where I left off.
My idea was to make little sail boats around the border of the quilt
instead of the applique the pattern calls for.
So, how fun is it that I happen to be making Sail Away... sail boats right now!
So I think I will just make a few more with these fabrics... and maybe a little tweaking of the
pattern for a different look... and then I will have another UFO conquered!
Did you know that Fat Quarter Shop is having a sale???
I might need to go see what is new with Minick and Simpson!!!
(hop on over there to get the special code and shop)!
Looks like I could do a little la-play-a there too!!!
