It has begun.

I have bitten the big one. I have cut into my beloved Park Slope fabrics which is my favorite fabric line.

Park Slope COMPLETE! - 104:365


It has taken me along time to decide what pattern to use. It put alot of pressure on me since I didn't want to get it wrong. But I think I have got it right since I am in love with it already.

I have begun.


I am making a twin size and shooting for 85"x102" so that I have a good size overhang to cover the mattresses. I am so excited about this quilt. It has been awhile since I felt really inspired to make a quilt.

So far


My parents are coming to stay with us for a couple of months and so I should be able to get alot of sewing done. I have 4 large quilts in the works so lets hope I can get them done! It is driving me crazy that I have that many WIPs.

Love it! What size blocks are you using?

Katy Cameron said...

Oh, very cool! I was struggling to work out how the corners fit in when I saw the first block, but it all made sense with a whole bunch of them together!

Park Slope!! Love! Good job actually using it - it's a hard one for me to cut. One of the first fabric lines I ever bought, and still an all time favorite.

Very VERY impressed that you have hung onto the park slope collection for so long. I have been using the tinyest bits for ages and have nothing left :( Also, great choice on quilt pattern!

Barb said...

I'm so happy you cut into your Park Slope...they you can enjoy it every day in a beautiful quilt. I know how you feel about finding the perfect pattern - I hate to think about what I could have made, so I just don't make anything at all! Enjoy your time with your parents.
