I love the dress version of the Washi pattern. Anna Maria Horner's new Field Study fabric was a perfect choice. I'll be making at least one more Washi top - look at this new fabric from Thomas Knauer's new Frippery line. I'll have a whole Washi wardrobe to wear at fall quilt market in Houston next month! Thanks Thomas.
School started Tuesday and I've been working like crazy in the sewing room trying to get caught up and organized.
I did a bit of cleaning and discovered some fabric bleed on a few of the tiny stars I've been working on. Yikes! I spray tested a bunch of fabrics and threw out the ones that bled. Now, I'll be spray testing all of the finished stars before putting them into a quilt. These blockes were sprayed with water and pressed. The blue one on the left had fabric bleed before even being sprayed. I'm glad I discovered this before piecing the whole quilt. The good news is that my cutting table is now actually clean enough to use! For months I've been using a smaller cutting mat on my sewing table.
I have a few other quilts that I'm working on that I hope to share with you soon. I seem to have been on a quilt starting kick lately... I'll be working on some quilt finishes as fall progresses.
