the makings of a quilt
I started it! I may have bitten off slightly more than I can chew by choosing a queen size quilt for my first attempt and I've also tested my mathematical abilities but ... fingers crossed the next 8 rows go as well as these two and it should work out.
Fabric courtesy of Sheridan POP, turns out it was cheaper to buy European pillow cases on special and cut them up then to buy nice fabric. I would LOVE to make a hand screen printed quilt first but thought better of spending $300 plus on fabric for the front of the quilt on my first attempt.
That's also the beginnings of my painting nook in the background, perhaps a post of that to come ...
