I was telling my husband today that having a smaller room means I don't have room to lay out my squares. Sometimes when I am stumped I will lay out the squares and sometimes they will sit for days while I think.
I will have to find a place, maybe a bed???
So I decided to make a Samoan quilt with some of the fabrics that were sent to me.
Some of the fabrics she sent, some I had...so I am calling it yours, mine, and ours quilt.
It truly looks a lot prettier up close and personal!
I decided to use my "Quick Curve Ruler"....boy I am addicted to that ruler.
I am using four different fabrics for each row and as you can see, actually five if you count the background fabric. I am using a color for each row so I can use a lot of her different fabrics. Won't it be nice to have a quilt that depicts a lot of the fabrics she gave away to me?
This picture above did not turn out good at all...that color is green not gray. Maybe it is the lamp I have sitting on my cutting board that messes with the color?
Orange....ummm ummm good...
Yellow, this color just didn't do well either...maybe it is throwing the colors back? Isn't it dark colors that absorb light?
Purple. I decided to use some stamped Samoan fabric that I have had for the background fabric.
I have red, and brown left to do. The red has the Samoan stamp as well. I don't have a blue background that will go with the rest so there is no blue, not unless I can use aqua? We will see.
As most of you heard, Craftsy has either gotten rid of some designers or cut some of the patterns out of the existing designers. My patterns were cut down to 2, my Valentine topper and
placemats for a round table.
These are my best sellers but I did sell other patterns as well and my free patterns went really good. I was surprised to see the free patterns go, since they did quite well.
Now to decide if it is in my best interest to just quit or try to find a different venue.
I did do etsy but I have my reason for no longer doing so....I might open up again, things remain to be seen.
I hope all of you have a fabulous NEW YEAR!!!
