I had to.....

Best made plans and all that....

I didn't sew on my days off.  (I didn't get my refrigerator cleaned out, either....)  I did sew on Saturday and Sunday, but I was interupted a lot.  Everytime I sat down to sew, someone needed me to take them somewhere or I had to do something.  Not kidding!

I've wanted to finish the Modern Bargello quilt.  C has called Dibs.  She reminded me of that again last night.

I finished the yellow panel finally.  I worked on that color because I was happy with my fabrics.  I really like the way it came out.  It might even be my favorite.



I cut my orange fabrics, but there was one that was bugging me.  I stopped by my LQS yesterday to see if I could find another fabric that would work better.  I did find one and I feel much better now.


The fabric second to the bottom was the one that wasn't right for me.  It had too much yellow in it and seemed to be lighter than the third fabric even though my copy machine test said that it wasn't.  I removed it and shifted the other fabrics down.  I bought another fabric to be the lightest....nothing like buying 1/6th yard for two 1.5" squares.  (The only thing is that the fabric is a nice peach that will work as a skin tone.)



I hope to finish the orange panel tonight.  I'll arrange the rest of the panels back on the design board.  I still have to add black fabric to the top and bottom of some of the panels.

Don't forget the Modern Bargello quilt is made from Mary's awesome pattern!  Link

The plan is still to quilt it myself using tips and technique's learned from Ann Peterson's Craftsy class, Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine.  I'd still like to get my sewing table, but I don't think that is going to happen.  We've got too many kid expenses for sports and school right now.  C and Z's high school registration packets are already due and the money, too.  I can't believe how much yearbooks cost!  C even has to buy a book for one of her classes.  We're trying to find a used copy of the right edition.
