I mentioned that I have been in a bit of a slump, sewing-wise. I have just not felt inspired by much of anything lately. I have definitely been bored by a couple of the projects I have worked on recently. Log Cabins are cool, but not terribly interesting to work on, I have decided. Maybe I should try one of the log cabin variations (curved, combination blocks etc) to spice things up next time. If there is a next time. And oh.my.gosh, if you join any clubs sponsored by one designer, just beware. That's all I'm saying. I love Kim Diehl, but 18 of her kits sitting on my shelf is not just making me feel guilty, but b.o.r.e.d. I am going on such a regime of Not Buying It for awhile. Shop at home Nicole. You can do it.
That being said, my son Ahren needs a quilt right now. He actually purchased a jelly roll for me when he was vacationing in Norway. He spent 459 Norwegian Krone for a jelly roll of Laundry Basket's Hope Chest a while back. That is probably equivalent to about $60 US. Anyway, he thought it was a collection I might like, and I had so much fun explaining to him how Edita Sitar is so unique in blending traditional fabrics with coordinating batiks. I loved the jelly roll he got me, and at the price he paid, certainly wanted to make good use of it. I ordered two coordinating mini batik rolls and have enough (with some background fabric) to make a good sized quilt for him.
Don't you think this Kim Brackett pattern called Bali Stars is a good choice for this collection?
If I can get my mojo back anytime soon, this is a quilt I would like to make. All I need is some cream batik background fabric and I will be good to go.
