I’ve been pretty lucky with online fabric shopping. It’s pretty infrequent that I get fabric that I don’t like. Recently however I bought a few charm packs of Moda’s Summersville Spring and some half yard cuts of the material. When it arrived, I might have furrowed my brow a little… but then I thought that I might like it better once I sewed it up.
I still find it difficult to sew with a baby in the house, but this past month it’s become remarkably easier! She now has a regular morning nap (and usually an afternoon one as well) which allows me to get some sewing in. However, I wanted to sew a simple quilt because I knew the sewing would be in smaller chunks of time.
I’ve been wanting to do a simple HST (Half Square Triangle) quilt so I started by cutting the charm packs in half. But then, I didn’t really like how it looked.
So, I decided to cut them in half again to make Hour Glass squares. But I still don’t really like how it looks.
I am just not loving this quilt.
I think this might turn into a little lap quilt for the kitties to sleep on since they have almost worn out my Habitat quilt. I got a new sewing machine recently (there will be a whole post about sewing machine drama) and decided I will use this quilt to practice some FMQ (free motion quilting) since I don’t really care about the quilt too much.
