My quilt for Ellery is slowly coming together. After cutting out all my small pieces, they sat on my kitchen counter for a good 2 weeks. I just couldn’t get motivated to sew them together for some reason.
I did make some other stuff while procrastinating though….
A plethora of pillows for her new bed.
And lots of baked goods for moi. I can’t stop. It’s all I want to eat these days.
And now that I’m in the 7 week stretch, I’ve been on a serious home-organization kick.
Goodbye fabric closet!
…Hello under the bed storage!
Anyway, Leave it to an episode of the Bachelor to help me get my quilting mojo back. I sewed all my patchwork pieces together and looked up just in time to see Chris Harrison announce “Ladies, this is the final rose of the night.”
Like you don’t have a guilty (reality tv) pleasure?
I don’t believe it.
This weekend, I got around to sewing all the white sashing to my strips.
Next up is piecing together the back- I’m really trying to use up what I have, so it might just have to be a bunch of random large pieces of fabric. Unless some specific design jumps into my head.
I really started to like this project once I began to sew all the strips together. And, especially since Ellery kept coming up to tell me how pretty it was. And that means a lot considering she’s only worn the tutu I made her a few times and the doll carrier (yet to be blogged about) not once- i think it was too much of a contraption for her?
Who knows…Maybe I’ll just make her a closet full of quilts.
