When it's clean, anyway, there's definitely something about my Nook space that stirs the creative juices! Since being in there most of the day on Saturday, I've dreamed of sewing and UFOs that become finished, and fabric that I'd forgotten about, but am suddenly anxious to put to work and ideas for new projects.
Whoa, slow down there Tiger . . . beware the ides of March! ;)
When I saw it, I *immediately* thought of the five orphan fairy frost blocks and the pile of fairy frost fabric (Michael Miller's) that Jean (Creates) had picked up somewhere and sent me (see this post).
(Oh, and pay no attention to the fact that it was sent nearly three years ago, okay?)
Until I saw that IG pic. BAM. It clicked and all the pieces fell into place and I knew *exactly* what I wanted to do with those blocks and that fabric. Oh my yes, I did know. And I have a burning desire to work on it immediately, too!
I have two problems. One is not so big. I need a sixth block. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do about that, until I got to looking at the blocks in My Orange Crush.
Surely any one of those blocks would fit in well with the blocks already prepped. I feel better already.
The second problem I need some help/advice/coaching on. All of the blocks are 10.5" (unfinished). Except one.
This particular block is 10"ish. One side measured 10.25", one measured 10". What do I do about that? I've got more of the background fabric--should I just sew a generous strip around on all sides and then square it down to the appropriate dimensions? Someone please tell me how to make this work using the block! I don't want to create an additional block if I can help it.
Any idears? Please and thank you!
