My Creative Space

A week already?
Last weeks cushions are almost completed! I do have one left. He will have to wait. 
Those of you that have been reading for a while may remember that I am a brides maid for my sister. Well the wedding is....welllll....really really close. Like we leave 4 weeks!?!!!! And well, I need to make the flower girl dresses. 2 of them. And well.....I also need to make a quilt.....or 2 before than too......!!!!!!!!!!!! (hopefully my sis doesn't read my blog, if you do, look away now) Good news is hubby has next week off, for ACDC, works 6 days and is then home until April! YAY!

So as you can imagine the next few creative spaces will be all about sewing for the wedding. Starting with the quilts...


These are 2 5" charm squares from retro mummy. Botany by Moda. Sewn up into groups of nine, and then will be sashed in white...


and this fat set of Amy Butler's "Love" that will be made up into this. Thinking with some of the bigger prints that I will just cut 11" squares. I was so excited when the postie came yesterday I stopped cleaning just so I could iron them lol! Fabric is from Fat Quarter Shop

So 2 weeks I'm giving myself to finish the quilts...both of them! Madness?! We'll see...

Pop over to Kirsty's for more spaces xox

All that quilting talk may as well be in another language for me but those fabrics are gorgeous and will make 2 stunning quilts. Looking forward to watching the progress.

Kirsty said...

You'll be right. There's nothing like a deadline to keep you motivated (& sleepless).

Love the fabrics. Good luck with the deadline, nothing like a bit of pressure to spur you into action!

You are going to be a busy girl! Sometimes a deadline works well for me as I have no choice and have to just do it! Other times, like this week, there just wasn't enough time and it all went pear shaped. But worked in the end! Good luck with your gorgeous quilts, are they for your sister? Lucky girl xo
