But Friday, I decided to use my die cutter and cut out some tumbler blocks for some almost mindless sewing. However, I realized that planning rows so that the lights and darks alternate is not so mindless. The bottoms of the tumblers on one row have to match the bottoms of the tumblers on the next row so that the seams align. I also tried to have no fabric match on any row. In that I was almost successful. Almost - but not quite, I don't think it is too obvious but you can find it.
In other news, I saw something that broke my "no new fabric purchases" vow. But it is only one piece. And it is beautiful.
Colorways by Vicki Welsh. And it is a one of a kind snowdyed print. She titled it Fire Agate and it was in the Hand dyed fabric/Crystals part of the shop. It is approximately 38" square. My first thought is to make a whole cloth quilted piece with it. I can't imagine cutting it up....but only time will tell.
