To celebrate, the DH and I are going to farmers' markets today. So I'll post just a quick glimpse of what's going on in My Happy Place.
At quilting class on Wednesday, Cathy shared the clever idea of making a "mini" design wall from a foam core board and flannel. I didn't have any foam core at home, but I had an old, worn-out June Tailor reversible cutting mat and pressing board. And some fusible fleece. Et voila:
A mini design wall that fits perfectly on my sewing table!
I really need it for the Jelly Roll Party Sample I am making for the November class. The pattern is "Mirror Mirror" by A Quilters Dream.
The pattern is a little sketchy on details, so I worked out my own cutting directions. The fabric is Basic Grey's "Little Black Dress," which DH picked out at Sew-ciety in Castle Rock. After the farmers' markets, we'll scoot up to Castle Rock, where I'm hoping the shop will have some yardage from this collection for a binding.
In case these photos are a little dull, here's a photo of the DH's running shirts. Aren't the colors great? I think I'll make a modern quilt from all solids using this collection of bright colors!
Happy autumnal equinox to those in the Northern Hemisphere and happy September equinox in the Southern Hemisphere!
