12 Projects in 2012... planning stages8:00 AM
Ok guys... I'm really surprised how many projects I've actually gotten done this early in the year. While this isn't a finished 12 Projects post, I thought I'd share some plans for my next project... quilting. This is a big one guys.
Seriously, I'm so excited and nervous about this project. I've made a picnic blanket similar to this one before, but this time, I will be quilting the top layer. I love the fabric. I got it from fabricshoppe on Etsy.
I love the patterns! The scissor one is especially adorable. They're from the Half Moon Modern collection by Moda. I've already cut it into 8 inch squares. I need to get a few more patterns but my next step is sewing them all together! I'm debating on whether or not to do traditional quilting or try this free motion quilting tutorial from Lella Boutique. It's a little intimidating but I think it would look adorable with this blanket.
I can't tell you how excited I am to start making this baby. It's going to be a labor of love for sure. But when I'm done and able to lay out on it this Spring I will be one happy camper :]
