My fabric and thread arrived from the Five Monkeys shop on Etsy for the Clover and Violet blog quilt along! Beautiful, isn't it? I decided to get the kit the shop put together for Clover and Violet after hours of indecision staring at my own hoard. I don't usually do hand embroidery, so being able to buy just the amount needed for this in the matching colors from Five Monkeys is a big plus for me.
It's gonna be a courthouse steps block with small bits of embroidery in the center white square of each block. This is my first fat quarter project. I generally over-buy on fabric. In fact, asking for a yard is hard for me. More often than not, I quickly change the cutting order from one to two yards when I see that pair of scissors about to cut into fabric. I am freakin' nervous about messing up these lovely little fat quarters! Today is the big day, though. The scissors hit the fabric. Am I the only one with fabric cutting anxiety? Wish me luck.
There's still time to join in the fun. This will take a year after all! The button below will take you to the information.
