Happy Friday! Isn't having one more block to sew in a project the best feeling?! 😀
I hope everyone's had a great week!
There were a bunch of odds and ends laid out on my new @olfacreates cutting mat this morning so I sorted them out til they were picture worthy and took a 📸 😁
I've got one block left to assemble in my latest quilt and I couldn't be more excited to join it together and finally get the full experience of what the quilt top will look like once it's all joined together! It's a remake of the one I had made over 2 years ago which will be a pattern in my upcoming book from @bluestarpress. Instead of using a solid black kona and batiks, this time I went for a softer look of Liberty Lawn paired with Essex Linen.
I'm hoping to finish up the top today, maybe pick out the fabrics for my first @brimfieldawakening block that the ladies had graciously sent over when they heard I was a big fan, sew the opening closed of the lavender sachet up in the right corner (which has been making my workspace smell so fresh and summery)
It's clipped shut to make sure it doesn't spill (again 🤣)
Seriously though, isn't the translucent cutting mat awesome?! Besides being pretty (which it has the looks 😍) I love how big it is! I mean look at all the stuff I was able to fit on it! It's 24x36, my fav cutting mat size because it fits perfectly into my workspace without wasting an inch of potential cutting space. I mean who wants to go smaller and have to gently move the piece they're cutting down with the risk of it shifting? Not me! 😂 I've also got my fav new toy, my @violetcraft seam roller that came in a previous months @quiltybox - oh which reminds me!!! Our giveaway for this month's box ends tonight (Friday June 29th) at 9pm so be sure to enter if you haven't already! There a pretty shade of @aurifilthread on there that I'm debating using for quilting up the bad boy on the right, my favorite @loccitaneusa lotion ever (seriously - it smells like roses and has a rifle paper company design on it!) and a few of my new olfa frosted rulers (thanks guys! 😘)
