Hi Angel! I hope you're well. How is the remodeling progressing on the house? You must be so antsy to move back and settle in (and set up your new studio space, ha!). I can't wait to see the things you made for the craft show where you had a booth last weekend, hint hint!
In the meantime, I wanted to show you a spur-of-the-moment project I've been working on. I need some input and ideas!
Grey is my favorite color lately. Blame it on Seattle... as well as the amazing fabrics currently available everywhere featuring that muted and versatile color. I've been on a mission to finish a well-overdue gift for a friend (more on that soon!!) and I wanted it to feature a combination of greys and linen.
I pulled out all my grey fabrics and cut strips of various widths that I sewed together. The project came together nicely, here's a sneak peek. I will share all the details once it has reached its recipient...
After assembling the fabric pieces for the gift, I was left with several triangles of grey strips and linen. I decided to sew them together yesterday, to make squares. I had made coasters along the same design for my shop and love the diagonal seam between the linen and print. I think the patchwork adds even more to it.
I added a charcoal border to the smallest square since it was much smaller than the others. Oh how I wish I had paid more attention to matching up the seams, the wonky corners are now ALL I can see.
The beauty of such a spur-of-the-moment idea is that it's creativity at its best. However, I now have 4 squares of various sizes featuring this combo. I love the look of it but I have no clue what to make with them. Well, that's not true. I have several ideas, but none of them are grabbing me. SO, I would love your input!
What would you make with these squares? Would you make one project involving them all or would you split them up? Would you make something practical or decorative? Tell me, tell me.
