My first new project of the year is all about last year. I'm calling it Calendar Quilt 2016, it's inspired by the calendar towels that I made for holiday gifts.
And also by friend Jaye's series of Fabric of the Year quilts. She usually chooses a shape and cuts one from every piece of fabric she buys during a year.
So those are my starting points or inspirations, the idea of a calendar and the fabric that came into my studio during that year represented on the calendar.
Taking off from there, I accumulated fabric last year, and didn't sort it into the rest of my stash. It's all in one (or more honestly, two, ahem) boxes. So, I'm taking a cut of each piece and running it through the Sizzix to cut some triangles to piece some blocks.I'm cutting the larger piece into two that will fit on the triangle die, flipping one of them over. So I get two isosceles triangles, two right-hand and two left-hand triangles.
As I cut more fabric, the whole look of it changes. It's going to be a fun project, stay tuned for more updates.
