Well I don't know how this happened!
Well I do really. It is called "stupid crazy ideas that pop in your head" moments...
OK, where I work doesn't help at all. I get stupid crazy idea moments often. It isn't so often that I act on them so quickly. Tuesday I was working while my family were off having a fabulous NYeve barbeque! Oh well, that happens. I need to work. So I work. I clean, tidy, help customers. Get side tracked while cleaning & tidying. As you do. As a result I find myself taking home pretty fabric. & a new book. Growing up Modern. It's an awesome book with great simple patterns for cot or small bed quilts. (It was ordered into store originally with me in mind I believe!) So NY Eve I got some cutting time in. But boy, was I cross. I seriously need to treat myself to a new rotary cutter. (Before I put a big hole in my window!)
New Year's Day was a miserable one. It was drizzling all day long. So what better way to play than to assemble a quilt top. (I did also incorporate helping with some different jigsaw puzzles in the middle of this too! The wee one was asleep which is why I achieved what I did! )
Lots of pretty strips to sort out. My feature fabric was the tractors which was the ideal one for the line through this fabric.
& boy do I love this lot of co-ordinates. I was so excited when we ordered those spots, stripes & chevrons some time back. They only came into store at the end of the year. But wow, I am just loving them.
Teamed up with a white & solid bella dark blue & voila...
I'm really pleased with the result. DJ loved it. He has a hat made from this tractor stuff which he kisses. He did the same to this & snuggled up to it even though it was pegged to the curtain!
So a bit of simple quilting on it down the track & done. Hopefully soon.
But hey, as if I stopped there. Stay tuned for a second oops moment tomorrow... :-)
