A whole yard each!!
Last week I had cut out and sewn blocks for a wall hanging. But when it came to the background, well, I just didn't feel good. Wanted gray, but the Kona Ash that I had bought was leaving me flat and the quilt washed out. So I went back to my color card and discovered that Kona Bluebell was the perfect gray..whodathunkit?!
So why is there this wonderful Henna Garden picture? Well, I have had a rough week. So what do you do? Start a new project of course!! Jennifer and Jessica over at Twin Fibers were having a little Henna Garden love fest. You can see Jennifer's quilt here, and Jessica's quilt here.
Funny, but true, Jessica's quilt was inspired by an antique quilt of mine she saw on flickr and I posted about here!
I had been inspired to collect these prints, after seeing this quilt ! So inspiration is going round and round over there on flickr. All my strips are cut in one day, while watching 3 two year-olds!!
I am putting that Kona Ash to good use! Couldn't let it go to waste now, could I? Making it using this tutorial, so no half-square triangles. (I would have had to make 552 hsts the old way, and I don't even want to think about lining up all those points!) It is fun to see it coming together!!!
Be sure to visit all the other sew & tells by using the sew & tell Friday button over on the left side bar. I hope all the inspiration makes you smile!!!
