Birthday stitching

I had an interesting day on my birthday. Not exactly the day I would have planned for myself, but I spent it with my family and had a lovely visit from Kylie in the afternoon.
I also started playing with a new range of fabric ‘1974’ by Urban Chicks for Moda. A jelly roll, charm pack as well as yardage made this one easy.


I’ve had this in my stash for a little while now. I had to buy it as 1974 was the year of my birth. This is a photo of where i got to and now I can’t decide if I should sash it or sew as is. I was thinking about sashing in a cream based fabric from the range with red cornerstones… any ideas or suggestions welcome!


As I was undecided and still had a lot of left over fabric (it was on clearance and I couldn’t resist) I started playing with this design:


I am now a big fan of this ‘rich red’ in the kona solids range. I am taken by this design too. It came together so quickly – think I may need to make a scrappy version with all my darker and muted colours. This is also at a stand still as I can’t decide whether the green check, blue or grey/purple dots. Help please!! I must say I am loving having the energy to be back sewing again.


Happy Stitching!
