Have you been sewing along with the projects from the book Zakka Style? It’s been fun to see all of the different versions of the projects starting from the beginning of the book. The first project was a tote bag and it took some time to make up. However, since then, the projects have been very quick and relatively simple. The idea with the Zakka Sew Along is to read the guest blogger’s notes for that week’s project on Monday and make the item up and link it by the following Sunday. I’m going to be traveling some over the next few weeks so I thought I had better look ahead.
There is only one quilt in the book and it is coming up in a few weeks. I have a charm pack of Japanese woven fabrics that I’ve been saving for just the right project, and I think this is it! My squares are 4″ and the pattern in the book calls for 6″ but that does not deter me. I will just add more rows/columns to make the quilt the same size.
I’m considering sewing this together with my serger. I have never sewn a quilt together this way before but all of these fabric are rather loosely woven (especially this linen) and I think it might be a good idea.
I did not get last weeks project (mini magnets) done due to travel for my husband’s birthday. However, I still feel like I’m ahead instead of behind because I’ve got this quilt all cut and ready to sew.
Happy Birthday Dear!
