This week I turned my recently-married-daughter’s room into a sewing room. I had to wipe away a lot of tears as the whole exercise was bittersweet. I love her and miss having her at home. But she’s as happy as a clam with her new husband, and now I have a sewing room! I’m just like a pig in a mud puddle about that!!! Here is the happy couple and my room. My joy and my sadness…
I know I’ll have a lot of tweaking to do, but what a luxury to have a space to spread out. Before this I had a corner of the bedroom that I used. My sweet husband claims he actually enjoyed seeing all the color, etc.
My first project in this room is another Moda Bake Shop beauty called Cartwheels Quilt http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/08/cartwheels-quilt.html#more
I’m using the Strawberry Fields fabric by Fig Tree just as they have done in the pattern. I’ve seen a lot of patterns for this fabric line but this is the best! Obviously it is a super easy pattern and so is coming together lickety split. Blocks are done – will be putting the top together today. There is no border used in this pattern, but I’m contemplating adding one. I’m just doing a huge happy dance right now!
