Sneak peeks and unfinished projects


This past week, I felt a bit stuck when it came to sewing and thinking about new projects to make, but now I'm beginning to get rolling again. Above, you can see a little quilt I'm working on. I made the top with some Curio charm squares and some grunge yardage, the sashing is Kona Snow. Now the backing fabric has finally arrived, and I can start thinking about the quilting. I decided to get a print from Basic Grey's new line, Hello Luscious, since the colours go really well with the Curio line. I love how much this looks like spring.


The design of the quilt top is really simple, so I thought I'd try to add some interest by means of quilting. I really feel like doing some hand quilting, so I got some pretty variegated embroidery floss to go with the quilt colours.


I'm still not quite sure what kind of pattern to quilt it in, but I'd like to try to integrate some florals. Let's see.


While I was stuck when it came to crafts, I did some mindless knitting. This is cotton yarn and it's going to become a humble dishcloth, loosely based on the instructions in this book. It's been some time since I last knitted anything and now I want to knit more again. It can be so relaxing!

Another relaxing activity is watching movies. I really love the cinema and finally went to see The Artist this week. I really loved it and want to watch it again, soon! Such a beautiful film! Try to catch it on the big screen, if you still have a chance!

Have a great weekend!

Oh yes, the whole thing screams spring - the prints, the colours, the floss - it's going to be so pretty! Several of those Curio prints are stunning - I really love the damask/lace and grunge prints, thanks for putting me onto them.
Have a wonderful weekend and happy sewing!
