I've been working on stripes this week and came up with some new options that will be great in the striped quilt I'm working on. I'm dyeing on both Kona Cotton and on a poplin that I've fallen in love with. More stripes are coming, and soon they'll be available for sale to quilters. Sign up for my newsletter for a sneak peek, coming soon.
The first month is complete! And so is the back of the jacket. Tomorrow I'll take a picture of the completed back and then get onto the front. I'm still holding to my general intention of getting it all pieced before I decide how to proceed with the decorative stitching, which is what will hold the whole thing together.
Today I tackled the oddity of the shoulder slant. I'm not really loving the angles, but I got over the hump and am heading towards the front. I expect once it's all stitched up it won't be so noticeably angular.
Today I did a bit of decorative stitching, mostly because it's so cold in my workspace that my hands hurt while I was laying up new patches. So after running warm water on my hands until they thawed out I climbed into bed and turned on "Versailles" and mindlessly stitched. A pretty great way to spend an afternoon. Anybody else watching it?
Very blue today.
