Fall fabrics

IMG_6249The kids headed back to school last Thursday.  I know school starts in August here every year, and this being the 9th First Day of School for our family you would think I would be used to it by now, but my brain still associates back-to-school with September and comfortable temperatures.  So my brain is saying “fall” but the rest of me is saying “summer” because it was 32 Celsius today, with 35 and 36 C forecast for the next couple of days (that would be 90, 95 and 97 degrees Fahrenheit).  That is NOT back-to-school weather!

Today the brain won and I played with fall fabrics to make some fall placemats and a runner.  The project is coming together quite well, which is a relief because I went ahead and cut everything according to the measurements QuiltPro spouted without checking the math or making a test block.  It occurred to me after I cut all the pieces that as this is the first time I sew something up from a pattern I designed on QuiltPro, perhaps I should have checked to make sure the program did what I thought it did.  Happily, it did and now I am off to stitch more fall fabric.

  3. Well that pile of cut fabric is quite the tease! I bet they'll be awesome placemats and a table runner. And I'm glad to hear QuiltPro tells you to cut correctly...I've never used mine for that...not sure my super-old version even has that option! (See how much I've used it!?)
