After a whirlwind week of basketball practices, games, karate, and of course schoolwork, my wild thing is off at his very first overnight church retreat, which gave me some uninterrupted sewing time this morning. I put together my newest stacked squares quilt top, and I am loving the fresh color palette. By the way, the original Moda Bake Shop pattern uses a layer cake and jelly rolls, but I have adjusted the measurements to use yardage rather than precuts, and if you're interested, you can find it HERE.
After I finished my last quilt, I wasn't really feeling any inspiration for another project. Don't get me wrong, I definitely wanted to sew, I just didn't know what I wanted to do. Even with the marvel of pinterest and the blogging universe, nothing was grabbing me as something I just had to try for myself. I found myself scrolling through past quilts and just trying to decide on one that I might like to make again. I don't repeat designs very often, but I'm glad I settled on this one. I really do love the way the colors play together, and the 3D illusion of the pattern is really cool.
I've learned that just sitting and mulling things over doesn't really work for me. I'm much more of a snap decision girl, and apparently pushing through with a repeat design was exactly the inspiration kick I needed because I have also sketched and planned out my next quilt. Got to love it when creativity strikes!
