Up late…working and planning

I don’t have much in the way of pictures tonight. I took a lot, but I am saving them for Monday. Lately, I’ve been feeling like my posts are…lacking something. So, in the spirit of encouraging you, my visitors to spend more time being creative, I am going to share the step-by-step process for making this wedding gift in my Sunday post. Also, I’ve spent a good chunk of my crafting time tonight doing “real” work (i.e., doing work that buys me craft supplies) so I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to. So tonight I will share the quick sketches I did.

The challenge with this project is I have never met the bride. All I know is what colors she likes in her kitchen. So I have no idea of she likes animal motifs or traditional quilt blocks. Her style could be country, or it could be modern. Plus, it’s a gift for two, so it needs to bridge that always difficult gap between girly and manly. Well, it can’t be too manly if it’s quilted, but you get what I’m saying.

Anyway, I figured simple geometric shapes would be a good middle ground. Either circles or bars would blend with a range of styles easily. The circles were my first idea, but looking at the fabrics, I am now leaning the other way. A few of the fabrics I have will showcase their patterns way better as rectangles.

So I will mull over it for the next day. But then I need to get busy and sew. Les than three days to the wedding! Eeek!
