After a few quiet weeks of no crafting, I am pleased to have started and completed a project in just a few hours. I’ve been meaning to create a cover for my computer monitor so the guest room (which also acts as my office) doesn’t look so office-like when guests visit. At first I laid out jelly roll strips of pink tones and was almost stitching them all together, but it dawned on me that it was too “same-ish“. I was on the verge of getting into a sewing/quilting rut and the entire guest room would have been in plain stripes… so I googled some quilts until I found some beautiful inspiration. And thanks to this fantastic tutorial, I created my most difficult piecing project yet!
I used a mixture of Moda fabrics– some of Sherbet Pips and some of Dogwood Trail. I finished it with a simple back with a strip of pink (it won’t ever be seen).
It was a great beginner’s project and luckily only one block. Something definitely went wrong with my math, my cutting, my quarter inch measurements… I’m not sure. But my should-have-been 6″ square quadrants were more like 5″ x 5.5″ rectangles.
It didn’t matter. The geese are still flying and in fine circular formation. And most importantly, my guest room now has a softer look and hopefully future visitors will dream of geese and not of their Monday workload waiting for them back in the office.
