Ich gebe es zu, ich mag die sogenannte Streifentechnik. Auch wenn ich mir nur ganz selten mal eine richtige Jelly Roll kaufe, so schneide ich doch ab und zu meine Stoffe in die für die rolls typischen Masse.
I admit, I like to work with stripes of fabric. However, I seldom buy the real jelly rolls, but I do cut my fabrics to the measures of these rolls.
New fabrics and new books have recently arrived. And as usual I then am tempted to leave my UFOs for another while and go ahead with a new project ;-) .
In fact I only wanted to try out a new block but suddenly I had two, three and more of them....
and this already was the beginning of a new quilt. The fabrics almost represent the weather outside: wonderful blue sky with bright and warm sunshine.
In the garden I am now sitting in a shady place, finishing some little pouches for hankies. I tried to make a version that has a better closure than the ones I sewed before.
