Yesterday afternoon I started cutting out fabric for a new quilt.
I am using the Swiss pattern by Camille Roskelley. I fell in love with the pattern as soon as she posted it on Instagram, thinking it would be great for scraps. I started with orange, as it's pretty much my favorite color. Unfortunately I didn't have near the number of orange scraps as I do other colors, so I had to pull from my stash (which was also limited in orange) to cut some of the larger pieces. I still have quite a bit of cutting to do, but hope to be moving towards the assembly stage later today. My daughter has also started pulling from the blue scraps to make a blue Swiss quilt. I'm thinking there could be a rainbow of Swiss quilts in my future.
I hope your New Year has started off the best it can be. I've made no resolutions, set no particular sewing goals and have selected no special word for 2016. I really just want to relax and enjoy the process...so maybe that is a goal/resolution.
