Well, my new goal hasn't continued in the way I intended, only one post for January so far and here we are, only 2 days till the end of the month. My excuse is that I am trying very hard to sort out, clean out, get rid of clutter and generally get organised so I can settle down and do some fun stuff, like sewing. I have made some progress but everything I have sorted out in my living area has ended up in my bedroom. I have made a pact with myself that I would spend at least 1 hour a day in there ... so true to my pact, I actually spent 2 hours in there today. However, that 2 hours was spent sleeping, not sorting ... oooops!!!!!
I am back at my craft class on Tuesday after the Xmas break ... doesn't that seem eons ago .... and I am going to be making a quilt each for my 2 middle grandsons, 6 and 8. I am going to make them identical except for the binding. I have collected 14.5 metres of fabric in Star Wars/space and sporting themes. Do you think that will be enough!!!!!? All washed and ironed. :c
Not quite sure of the how yet, but I thought maybe I would do the star wars in 1 x 8" squares and then piece the rest as 4 x 2" to make 8" blocks. Have I expressed that right??? Not sure whether to sash between the blocks or not, but if I am going to use both the space and sport fabrics I may have to so it is divided up. I may not use all these fabrics, or I make have to find another sport one so it doesn't look odd. Any suggestions or ideas would be gratefully received.
