Tour de fleece Day 11 – resting day
Day 11: rest day! At least considering spinning. I started my new project in terms of using up a lot of fabric – a large quilt for our large bed. It will be 2×2,50m when finished and therefore be the largest thing I’ve ever done!
I got 2 bags filled with fabric lately and in search of a place to put them I realized (again), there is no space for fabric anymore. Back when I was sewing medieval style dresses between school and university I bought a lot of fabric in denser colors. A lot of dark greens and navy, but also a bolt of red. After someone at the Climbers TdF group said she always pairs colorful pieces with black in her quilts, I thought it would work with some of my darker fabrics, too, and of course with the red.
Also, I cut squares of some of my precious fabrics ( you know the ones you hate to cut and the smaller the last piece gets, the smaller the pieces become you cut from it simply because you don’t want to use it up) and a whole bunch of former shirts and vintage pillow cushions.
I’m happy doing some sewing again. My fabric stash is out of control and in need of regulation 🙂
