Yet another new project (or two).

Rachel over at P.S. I Quilt is feeling generous. Besides the Siggy Swap she is having a Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along as well. I bookmarked this quilt as inspiration a few months ago and now I’m thrilled to be able to make one of my own! I debated between two lines of fabric and settled on Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley line which will work wonderfully. In a few months I will have my very own version of this quilt!
I went fabric shopping yesterday for the first time in awhile. I didn’t plan on getting much, I mostly needed some white for the Siggy blocks and I wanted as much wood grain fabric as Old Trinity had (which ended up being 3 ½ yards). I also left there with a fat quarter bundle of Amy Butler’s Love line which will be cut into very soon.

I hate trimming!

But it had to be done and I finished the Winnie the Pooh quilt top. I scrapped the on point layout and went for a zigzag pattern and I love it! Look at all those spare millimeters that would have been in there messing everything up. I got near perfect points by doing that least-pleasurable of steps so it’s worth it. I’m deciding on a back but it might just stay in the WIP closet until I have finished some of the more important projects.
