I finished one of my projects for the 2nd Round of the For Love of Solids Swap earlier than I expected.
Even went full steam ahead into my final project for that swap. I'd already had everything cut it just needed to be assembled.
Then I got a closer look at it and realized I'd screwed it up.
And spent an unmentionable amount of time trying to figure out how to take pictures of my screw-up without ruining the surprise of the project.
This is the best I came up with:
The pictures make it all look better than it is. That staining/shadow on the fabrics is where my fusible melted through.
Luckily, I'd grown pretty attached to this design so making two isn't such a bad thing.
The stained one can stay. The new I'm-piecing-ironing-oh-so-slow-it's-driving-me-crazy one will get sent off.
In between my frustratingly slow piecing I've been auditioning fabrics for the contests I've suddenly decided I need to enter even though it's dreadfully close to the deadline.
There's the Ugly Swoon Block which really is a good idea because I can get some practice before cutting into my precious Lizzy House fabric.
Current winners for that fabric choice are:
I actually love that spiderweb on the bottom but I pulled it to have an obnoxiously bright background for the block.
Next is the Modern Mini Challenge.
I've been digging in the scrap bin for this one:
Ha! Bet you never saw those colors coming from me....I didn't either.
This mini will give me the chance to try out a technique I've wanted to learn to use on a much larger scale.
Justification much? Me? ....Totally.
Plus, my design involves Bacon.
It needed to be said twice.
And you know me I love to give myself eighty bajillionbillion projects at once.
I got an idea.
I'm takin' all this chaos over to Lee's like always.
Any guesses on how many I finish on time?
