I went back and finally finished the gluing and cutting and basting of this charm pack that Prim LOVED. Picture time:
My favorite has to be that tree in the upper right, which is unfortunately upside down in the picture. My least favorite is the guy’s torso in the middle of the shot. These prints didn’t work at all well for the 1/2″ hexagons, both since the patterns were too big and because they had too many colors in them to work with my I’m Not a Machine project. Ah, well. Live and learn. Prim LOVES them.
Not pictured are the leftover 5″ x (mostly) 2.5″ strips which will eventually go into a scrappy coin quilt. This charm pack was tied with a ribbon which went missing well before I had everything basted, let alone ready for their photos.
Did I mention that Prim LOVES this Pepe in Paris fabric? (Yes, you did, HP, a bunch of times now.) Well, I got a yard each of the main print in pink and blue (I couldn’t find the white–my “local retailer” was all sold out, ages ago) for pillowcases. He’s very excited about the idea. I like this tutorial at Film in the Fridge for making fancy pillowcases with cuffs and NO RAW SEAMS!
I want to get started on them, but I need to finish a few other projects first, so they’ll have to wait a bit.
