It's Craft Time - Party Pants Quilt
OK. You got me. I don't really have a craft for you today. The week was hectic and all of a sudden it's Tuesday night and I just don't really feel like crafting tonight.
But I have something to whet your appetite. Above are fabrics for a quilt entitled "Life is Short, Wear Your Party Pants". The middle panel is from 1965 and I just love it. Ebay (sing song voice). The stripe fabric will make two thin borders around the panel, then the white on the top will be the next border and have the title spelled out in black letters. Then the final border will be the rest of the fabrics made into pinwheels. I can see it in my head and boy howdy it's cute! Except maybe for the yellows - they are looking a little neon in the picture. They might have to be pulled. And it needs a little of the bubble gum pink in there. Hmmm... maybe I should look through my stash again.
Any how, you have something pretty to look at and a project in the making to get excited about. When will this be finished you ask? Good question. It's about 4th down on the list of sewing projects. Unless I get really ambitious this weekend and just give it a whirl.
Playing with the fabrics was sure fun. I love touching them, laying them out, mixing colors, rearranging them - even if I end up not making anything. My name is Kat and I'm a fabric fondler. Are you?
