Good gravy where has July gone!
So I've decided on the fabric for my spools toppers and bottoms. I'm going pink and green! Most folks are using grays and I've seen a couple of taupe versions.
The spools I literally use are orange but that didn't appeal to me. I thought white toppers and bottoms would look nice against a red background, but was stumped on what fabric would then pop for the threads. I also contemplated going with red toppers and bottoms but the pink and green matches my sewing room so that's what I'm going with. Whew, I sure made that hard!
So I made my two inspiration blocks and called it quits, for now!
I need to get my July Schnibbles of the month done! And this month is quilters choice, I couldn't pass up this month.
Do you remember that bundle of Kate Spain Terrain fabric that I said I was going to enjoy looking at on my sewing room shelf all summer?
Well it's now officially off the shelf and on my sewing table.
I've decided to make Hubble, can you believe this stack of fabric is going to make that 70" x 70" inch star? Me either! But I'm thinking it will be fun to give it a try. Lots and lots of half square triangles in my future, one of my favorite blocks!
BTW, Carrie named this pattern after the famed astrologer Edwin Hubble. But I always think of Robert Redford from the movie "The Way We Were" when I hear Hubble, but he spelled his name Hubbel. Since Robert Redford is a big star, and dreamy, I'm naming my project Hubbel!
