For those of you familiar with the above fabrics, yes, they have been reprinted. Those are Amy Butler Lotus prints and you can find them at Hawthorne Threads. I was really excited when I saw they've been reprinted because I've been looking for a cool red print for my kitchen curtains.
The one WIP I did manage to get completed this week was my bathroom curtains. You can see them here.
I've been doing a lot of work on my Make Mine Modern Swap, which I posted about on Monday.
This is a sneak peek at my monochromatic challenge. I'm totally using a lot of white. I'm hoping to create a certain effect with the colors. But to be honest I've been looking at this quilt way too much and I'm sick of it and not even sure I like it anymore. It needs to go away for a week or so so I can see it fresh again. Does that happen to you? What do you do to refresh yourself?
I am binding and binding and binding the King Size quilt (still unnamed).
I started a pillow to go with it. That's my favorite block with the masked woman peeking out.
And I've realized why I do better if I just work on one project at a time. I really don't like piecing backings and quilting. So now I'm beginning to get a pile of quilt tops waiting for me while I work on the parts of my projects that I do like! Any tips on growing to like those parts of quilting that just aren't as fun for you?

Total WIP: 8
I'm also feeling like I'll never get the sewing room painted. So I'm shutting down the sewing and getting it done. I've decided on a neutral for the wall. I had lots of color in the old house and felt like I was limited with fabrics. Here I'm going with almost white so I can change out linens and decorations more to change the look. Because let's face it, painting is a total PITA and playing with fabrics is more fun! So today I'm going to clean up the room and start prepping the walls. Wish me luck!
