Meet Me in Paris
Another thing I got YEARS ago was this pattern and panel. It is another project I got soon after starting to quilt. I think it was the first panel I purchased and then couldn't figure out what to do with it since I didn't get any of the coordinating fabrics, so it also went in to a box as 'I don't know'. I found a few fat quarters that worked and still didn't do anything with it. My daughter's teacher is having a baby in March so I thought this would be a great baby quilt for her so I sucked it up and headed off to a fabric sale to get the background fabrics. I still don't know how I feel about the green that I chose but I am pushing through it...
Silk Wall Hanging
My favorite restaurant in town happens to be owned by a guy I used to work with and his wife. It is a fabulous indian food place....soooooooo good! Anyway, when it first opened I told the owner I would make something quilted to put on the wall, went out and bought silk fabric in very 'sari' type colors. Great shades! I discovered that silk is a pain to work with!! So guess what, into the box it went! I didn't have a pattern, pretty much just make a bunch of half square triangles and then gave up. lol So this one will be fun, but I WILL finish it!
