The original idea was to cut out enough for a pillow or maybe a little doll quilt, but once I got started I couldn't stop and I ended up with this stack. I didn't have a whole lot of this fabric anyway, so I just cut everything I had.
Unfortunately, when I laid out a handful of the tumblers to get a feel for what I was working with, I don't like it. There's not enough contrast, or maybe it's too busy... I'm not sure, but it's not working for me. I'm considering the addition of some solid aqua or that pinky-purple (lilac?) for more contrast, but any other suggestions would be welcome!
I've also made a little bit of progress on my rose star quilt. I'm sticking with the mini size layout, otherwise I think this could be another one of my hand piecing projects that goes on forever!
K's third birthday is coming up, and after making her birthday dress last year, I think I'd like to make a tradition out of it. I love the way that dress came out, too bad she grew out of it approximately five minutes after the party. This past week I found the fabric for this year's dress and now I need to decide on a pattern.
And, for the first time, I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday Linkup!
