New year, new quilt, that's what I say! Since my Scrappy Trips quilt this time last year (wow, where did that go?) I've felt another urge to sew up something scrappy and bright. I think it must have something to do with the new year and new beginnings perhaps? I may make this an annual tradition; January = scrappy quilt of sorts >.<
What I've been plotting is a rather large scale Irish chain - very much like this one. Though I'm not quite sure how big I plan on going!
So... the blocks you see above are completely wrong! I drew up the design, pieced about 8 blocks or so, laid them out and realised I completely
ballsed it up made a mistake! The white centres were too big so it didn't make the correct pattern. I can happily tell you since taking these photo's I have corrected the mistakes and I'm back on track ;) hey I guess these things happen to the best of us!? Once I've got the plans down 100% I will share it on the blog if you want to join in too. On the plus side, I've made a nice dent in my scrap pile.
Now I know I already have another Irish Chain quilt in the works, if you read my blog you may have remembered... well it's currently in the sewing room taking up far too much space. I'm tackling quilting it and it's going, well, slowly. very, very slowly actually. It's the biggest quilt I've done so It's quite a workout to wrestle it through the machine!
What are your sewing plans for the new year? Adding another project to the works, or finishing off quilts which have been laying around for months ... like I should be! xo
