my trimmings…

Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to be a judge for the Umbrella Prints Trimmings competition – this year I thought it would be fun to try my hand at making up a little something out of one of their trimmings packets. It seems like a fun challenge to see what you can make out of a certain number of little pieces.


I picked their warm bundle – Earth – and here’s what I received. Pretty, right?

This weekend I pulled out some coordinating solids – seems I reach for these quite often! I even used similar colors in a couple mini quilts using a few Umbrella Prints snippets.

(please excuse the poor iphone photo!)

I don’t have a definite plan in mind yet, but hopefully something fun will come to me!

[Today’s post was actually supposed to be about my newly finished 2013 sampler quilt, which actually features the Floating World prints from Umbrella Prints. However the rainy weekend and a toddler who seemed insistent on throwing a tantrum about everything (will someone please tell me that the tantrums and moodiness will end sometime soon? please?) foiled my plans to get photos. Hopefully tomorrow. It seems like it’s been a while since there’s been a finished quilt on this here blog!]
