Already gearing up for the next oldest one in the UFO basket. Yep, this Valentine top has been kicking around my studio for quite some time. It is hanging in the corner of the studio just waiting...brewing in my mind.
I made a half dozen mug mats using the selvages from my scrap bag. They all look wonderful scattered on my small glass top kitchen table.
So many quilts and projects I make look girly. To remedy that, I try to think "what would my husband or son like"? Not necessarily colors, but what elements or shapes would they like. Then I think about colors and designs in fabric. I was surprized to see my husband love a recent modern quilt I made using a geometric grid with lots of negative space, but the focus fabric had large-ish flowers all over. I will blog about that one in the future.
