Sneak Peak


I know I go on and on about process and even criticize folks who wait for finished projects for a reveal.  But I can't help myself on this one.  I am so excited by it.  It deserves a proper unveiling when the time is right.

This is a tiny sneak peak of my all organic quilt, showcasing the Geo Grand fabric by Daisy Janie. I was completely inspired by the fabric when it came to the design.  But the full effect isn't there yet, that's why I want to wait to reveal it.

To complement the Geo Grand I picked up some Robert Kaufman Organic solids from Pink Chalk. And I picked up some yardage of Geo Grand and organic thread from Plum Project. (Thanks Holly, for that recommendation!)

Yesterday I cut and finished the top.  This whole being home thing is kind of nice when the creative juices hit! Of course, there was little in the way of home maintenance done yesterday and I stayed up way too late to finish. I'm paying for that today. But nothing that tea in a Bunnykins mug can't mend.

I dunno...I really like ONLY seeing a finished project. It's instant gratification! I have enough wips of my own to worry with :)

I like to see pieces in progress. Sometimes they spark an idea totally unrelated to what we are viewing. Combinations of fabrics are revealed that you might not even notice when you see the whole quilt.

I so understand staying up late to work on a project and paying for it the next day. It's still worth it. And, the tease was just wonderful.

The mug will very handily cure whatever it is that's bothering one.

Did you just sew curves??? How do you do that???

What I usually do is I write up the process and my thoughts on a separate post/page that is hidden from the public. Once the quilt is completed and ready to be shown, I will provide a link that says: read more to my process and thoughts.

Looks intriguing, and potentially tricky sewing. I'm looking forward to the reveal.

You are being such a tease!, (But I agree, somethings just need to be revealed slowly...) Looks like it's going to be wonderful!
