Geo Baby was my one recent finish, but what fun! Samantha Green/For the Love of Fabric's "Geo" pattern was just what baby's mama wished for, and it was a joy to make with all those dots, plaids, and ginghams.
On our recent retreat, my guild-mate Matt/@odditease convinced me to try pattern-matching a quilt back, which I'd done once before, but didn't feel necessarily proficient at, so why not? We used the tutorial by Samantha/ Aqua Paisley Studio, and though it took me a couple of tries, it ended up pretty good. I'll try again and see if I can't perfect my technique like Matt has!
TUTORIALS & SUCH
I've been playing with improv spikes the last few months (here and here) and am at it again. If they're new to you, here's a little tutorial. They're a tad time-consuming, but impactful, and definitely worth trying!
P.S. Love solid quilts? Me too! Check out the new [sewsolid] on Instagram, curated by Angela/[angelabdesign]. You'll also want to see (and use) the new hashtag #sewsolid.
P. P. S. THANK YOU to all who commented on the last issue and were interested in the spool of Aurifil #4651 (Bari)! The winner chosen by Random.org was Cheryl Campbell. I've been sewing with my spool on pretty much everything, and I like it! It IS quite light, much like an off-white, so I'd probably choose something else for darker fabrics, but otherwise I've been enjoying using it, and as someone commented, it does up the fun factor!
