Even though the bathrooms have been put on hold this week, I still had remodeling on my mind. I decided this blog needed a little redo as well. What do you think? I can't decide if I like it or not. We'll see if it grows on me.
I'm also doing some pattern testing this week. First is a paper pieced Emu by Kristy @ Quiet Play. She has several patterns coming out soon to her Craftsy shop. I loved the pattern--so cute and super easy! There wasn't a ton of pieces to it so I would suggest it to any beginner that is new to paper piecing. I have never been up close to an Emu so I had to look up a picture :) Ha! I hope it looks like one!
Next is the pattern "Summer Solstice" by Marelize Ries @ Stitch By Stitch. You can view her post about it here. I'm working on a test block right now and have pulled my fabrics. I decided on the new line Union Station from DS Quilts for Fabric Traditions at Joann's. I also added a couple of other prints form her other lines, Farm Stand and Croquet. Her fabrics intertwine with each other so well--love that!!!
The solids match perfectly and are Joann's line of Kona solids. And they were 40% off. Score!! I can't wait to dig into these and start stitching! :)
