Have you ever wondered how long it takes to create one of your quilts, start-to-finish? Have you ever kept track completely of the entire process?
I was feeling some inspiration the other day due to a recent fabric purchase of some gorgeous greens and purples. I purchased them together with no project in mind, and despite really liking the look of them together, after sifting through my countless magazines and books, Bonnie's Smith Mountain Morning struck me with the most inspiration! With greens and browns! I've made a SMM already in browns and blues (as written), but I have also seen it done in browns and greens. Simply amazing colors together -- like a forest.
The idea of keeping track start-to-finish didn't hit me until after pulling fabrics. Therefore, I'll be adding another half-to-full hour of time to this project for fabric pulling. Not to mention the HOURS of sifting through magazines and books for the 'perfect' pattern! ;)
|Hr #1 -- the stacks of browns were pressed and cut into 3.5", 2" and 1.5" strips. Greens just started...|
|Hr #2 -- green 3.5", 2" and 1.5" strips cut; both green and brown 3.5" strips cut into HSTs and TRIs. No sewing yet.|
|Hr #3 -- 2" brown and green strips were pressed right-sides together, cut and fed through the machine to start the pinwheel units|
|Hr #4 -- 2" brown and green strips still seeing action; pressed right sides together and cut with the Companion Angle to start the hourglass 3.5" (unfinished) units.|
If you've kept track of your log-time during the quilting process, I'd truly love to hear about it. Please consider sharing a link and/or URL addy in the comments for me to peek at :D
