Planning for the New Year...
Actually I choose charts without realising how difficult they are till I start!
This is going to be my project for the new year.. it's a Robert Kaufman's oriental design fabric.
My sewing class tutor has given me the chart and it is going to be a challenge. Nine blocks joined and set on points with the main fabric (the bottom one in the photo) as the border surrounded by cream, then bound by a darker colour. Each block is a different design. All the pieces in each block will have to have a stencil cut so that will take me a while! The colours in the photo look a little muted and are much richer looking in real life.
I am so looking forward to sewing it..
Such a lot to do and so little time!
