Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


WIP Wednesday: Fall Fever


With the Coffee Quilt finished during the Labor Day Sew-In on Twitter (pictures on Friday!), I was good and cut up all my scraps from this and a few past projects, and put away the piles of fabric that had been accumulated.  Of course, my clean slate only lasted about twelve hours, but I felt virtuous.


One of my Getting it Done goals was some fall pieces for my shop.  When I pulled out my fall fabrics (I have a little!), I found a ton of scraps to cut up and a lot of strings.  I knew I wanted to use them for wall hangings, instead of the applique I did last year.


I designed this log cabin wall hanging on EQ7, to be made from rich fall prints with sky blue “chimneys”.  I also worked out the math for a very different one I want to do with string blocks.

Now excuse while I go dive into those gorgeous scraps!

Hope you’re playing with fabric today.
