Oh these quick change trousers - I think they are my favorite pattern to sew for this little boy. This is my second pair, the first is still in Hawaii and yet to be blogged. That pair is reserved for his birthday (in two months, oh my!). But these San Diego adventure pants - oh they are finished! I blogged about them here and you can actually see him wearing them in an adventure here.
A new project was started out of my new love for garment sewing. You see those cute little nine patch blocks? Those are from scraps of the pants that I made for him. After adventuring into garment sewing, I can see how quilts emerged in history. Why it made sense to cut out fabric scraps in order to make a large piece of fabric. This project makes me feel so very connected to the past. And that is a wonderful and humbling feeling all together in itself.
I wanted to start a bit of a scrap project year book quilt. Anytime I make something for Liam, I want to take some scraps from that project and make a nine patch block. The goal would be to make a throw for our home at the end of it all. It is a selfish project, one entirely for us. A quilt to cuddle under (as the Hawaiian weather allows) and to remember the memories that each fabric has attached to it. I hope to post every month the nine patch blocks that I make and then to sew them up at the end of the year.
Would anyone be interested in joining me for making a scrap project year book nine patch quilt? Comment and let me know! =)
Happy Sewing everybody!
