I've been working on a quilt for my parents for a few months now. Originally I set out to make a few small quilts using up scraps. Just try my hand at crazy quilting -- that was interesting. I had enough squares all ready to sew together, when my mom commented that she'd have to change her bedroom's decor colour because my quilt was mainly blue. And I was like "What? You want this quilt for your bedroom??? I don't think so! If I DO make a quilt for you...it's gonna be a nice one!" :)
So I set out to create a log cabin (my all time favourite quilting block) using blues. :) It was interesting -- it wasn't my first quilt ever, but it was the first time that I had ever been on my own! Choosing all the fabrics, etc. -- I was freaked out a little at first, but then got into it! And I was pleasantly surprised with what I came up with! :p
NOTE: The squares have just been place in the correct order...they have not been sewn together.
Unfortunately it's been put on hold for the past few months because I didn't have enough fabrics with the same dark shade of blue that I was using. I finally found some in the states in December...only to discover that my squares were turning out bigger than I had originally anticipated...and I hadn't bought enough for all 80 squares!!! (I was NOT happy!!! to say the least!) Unfortunately I couldn't find any of the material here at home, and I had to try find another patch that had the same shade. It wasn't easy -- but my mom finally came up with some!!! Now, I just need the inspiration to finish off the squares!!! I only have the last log to attatch...but I just do NOT feel like sitting behind a sewing machine right now! So it'll just have to wait...for a rainy day.
