After finishing the mini quilt sample for my QuiltCon Playful Partial Seams workshops, I knew it was time to dive in and start working on the Sesen workshop sample. I’ve had the fabric on hand for a long time, but before diving in and cutting all the fabric, I knew I needed to go back through the pattern carefully. After combing my way through the instructions and making a few changes and corrections, I was finally ready to get started this week.
Somehow this pile of fabric doesn’t seem nearly as impressive in a photo, but I assure you that it represents several hours of careful attention and focus. I listened to several Pantsuit Politics podcast episodes while I worked. The background for the quilt is Kona Natural, and I really like the small variations in the fabric.
To make sure I didn’t get anything muddled up while I was cutting, I created these reference swatches that will also come in handy for when I’m making the quilt top. Fabric A is Kona Papaya, Fabric B is Kona Kumquat, and Fabric C is Kona Coral.
And just as a reminder: this is where all that fabric is headed. Time to start sewing! What are you working on this weekend?
