Late Night Inspiration
Well, it’s rather late and I need to get to sleep since I have to go to work tomorrow. I have had a blissful three days off in a row (love taking Friday off or Monday off to combine it with the weekend!) I am only halfway looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. We might be learning something new though. OK, about my inspiration. The other night I spent a good two hours cutting and pasting little images of my scanned fabric onto the scanned picture of the pattern for the quilt I am making. After those two hours (Friday night/Saturday Morning) I decided that I didn’t have enough fabrics (big suprise) to complete this quilt. So, Saturday morning, I got up, got dressed, kissed my DH (dear hubby) goodbye and set off on a fabric quest (as DH calls it). I ended up with PLENTY of fat quarters and even enough fabric to make the pillow cases (for Godson’s birthday). Now I have spent all day Sunday washing the fabric and getting it ready. BUT, I still have to figure out the layout. Well, I have decided that the computer method is a good idea, but takes too long and is sort of cumbersome. SO, I am going to get the denim that I have ready, and figure out if I have enough of that for certain pieces, THEN I am going to lay it out for real and try to get a good idea of how I want it to look. I did find out that there is a computer program designed just for quilters that will let me add fabrics and put them into a quilt pattern, but that is going on my Christmas list. For now I will just have to work with what I have, real fabric. I will be posting more pictures soon. My DH let me order the digital camera that I have been pining over for the last three months and it should be arriving sometime this week! Yeah! That’s all for now. Until next time.
Happy Quilting, Sewing, and Designing,
