So I've been organizing drawers for the move, and I came across a bunch of fabric scraps that are big enough for... nothing much.

BUT I've been cutting these scraps into 4x4 and 2x2 pieces so that I can attempt my first ever real quilt. The t shirt quilt was a ultra fail, but I'm hoping this one will really work!

Cutting scraps

I thought I had enough for a quilt when i was done. There was so much fabric. So I calculated how many squares I would need. For a queen size quilt I need 506 squares. After cutting for 2 days I have 187 4x4 squares, and lots of little pieces I need to join. Point is, I need more.

What I have...

If you have scraps you want to get rid of, send them my way!!!

A baking orgasm

So yesterday instead of doing prints, I got involved organizing my craft dresser for the move. Just getting things i want and don't want separated. Making sure things aren't overflowing and breaking the drawers, which happens often.

My sewing and crafting has somewhat halted because we've been packing up, but I will be cutting my fabric scraps into usable quilting sizes later today.

Came across this video on Craft Magazine's blog and I really TRULY wish all recipes were made this beautifully.

India's Ink

Watching this video makes me want to take out my muslin and do some prints. I think I just may after this post. I bought a beautiful wooden block from india at the Rose Bowl flea market, just oh a whim, and I've never really printed anything with it.

Please watch this video, you will only want to wear printed fabric from India. Love.
