Here it is, Fractured complete. The binding isn’t quite the same colour as the deep purple but it goes and I’m happy with the completed project. Next week I’ll be starting Fractured Low Volume in whites, beiges and maybe a brown or two, looking forward to it! If you’d like to make a Fractured quilt of your own, you can find the Tutorial at Displacement Activity and check out the different colour combinations on the Flickr Group.
Yesterday I purchased the Craftsy class, “Design your own handbag”, it’s so awesome!! I’ve been making simple totes and bags for many years but rarely used hardware. Now that I know how to install it, I’m excited to try it out! I have a ton of grey wool I bought when I was making clothes, needless to say I’m going to be making bags with it! It’s very, very soft, it almost feels like cashmere but I know it’s not. I also have a ton of black, lightly woven interfacing which is perfect for this application. Another leftover from my garment days is yellow top stitching thread for jeans, looks great against the grey with a nice big 4mm chunky stitch.
Happy Friday everyone! What sewing are you planning to do this weekend? Have you signed up for the Craftsy handbag making class?
