Starting something new.

I’m finally finding time to get back in to the sewing room regularly again and I’m getting started on a commission. Some lovely yellows, tans and taupes were requested I’m adding a little blue too! I like occasionally working with other people’s color choices because you realize you like color combos that you don’t instinctively think to put together. Yellow and blue I work with constantly, but not the tans and taupes. Fun to stretch a little!

I pulled some fabrics….

…chopped up a ton of strips and started sewing them together!

We’ll see where this goes from here… just getting started!

After a quiet week I’m back with a couple of things to mention…

My Modern Block of the Month kicks off today over at Sew, Mama, Sew! I’ll be doing a new block design and tutorial each month for the next year. Check out July’s block!
