I’ve got a new project in the works… a mixtape quilt. I love the layout of this quilt, and I couldn’t resist purchasing this pattern from Oh Fransson! I decided to go with red and white prints to make the blocks, and I’m using a tan fabric for sashing. Next up: ironing and sewing the rows together. I’m hoping to have the top finished within a week or two, because I can’t wait to see what it looks like all put together!
In the pattern, Elizabeth mentioned using stickers with numbers (and letters, in this case) to categorize and keep track of blocks. This suggestion is ingenious, and I have been using this system on other projects to keep track of my layout of blocks and rows. I dug through my office supplies and found some blank file folder labels that I cut up for the job, and they have been perfect. They stick to the fabric without coming off too easily, but they don’t leave any residue when I do remove them.
Here is a sneak peek of the rows that have been sewn.
I’m planning to give this quilt as a gift, and I think it may be hard to part with. I’m already scheming about making one for myself in the future!
