There has not been as much sewing going on here over the last few weeks. We have been potty training both Penelope and Adelaide! Besides an accident here and there it is going pretty well!! I haven't left the house much since the thought of someone peeing on the floor in Target just makes me cringe.
I have gotten started on a new quilt though and I am really loving it so far! The fabric is 1001 peeps by Lizzy House. The characters are so much fun! It's full of magic lanterns and castles, genies and snake charmers, camels and horses. The girls love all of them and seem to find something or someone new each time they look at it.
The pattern is Kate Conklin's fussy cut fairy tales. It's such a great pattern and is coming together way faster than I thought it would. The way she has you cut the blogs is fantastic and produces almost zero waste! You gotta love that!!
For the sashing, I'm using kona ash and it is about as close as it gets to the greyish color in the prints. It really looks nice and is helping to tie all the blocks together.
For the small sashing that frames each if the fussy cut pieces, I used kona PFD. PFD stands for "prepared for dying" and I find myself using it a lot!! It's somewhere in between kona's white and bone. I find that the "white" in a lot of prints really isn't white or off white, this is where PFD really comes in handy.
All of the large blocks are pieced. Now I have to work on the sashing and all of the cute small blocks that make up the border!!
I hope all of you here in the US have a fantastic 4th of July and get to enjoy the long weekend with your family and friends!!
