I decided to go with the Rocky Mountain Puzzle block after seeing this quilt.
A couple weeks ago I picked up some Fort Firefly prints and I couldn't wait to start using them. The fabrics are gorgeous and the fabric is so soft, I wish I could have bought the entire line. So far I only have one block done, but I have a stack of close-to-done blocks sitting on my cutting table.
In addition to these blocks I have spent the last few days working on curtains for my son's room. When we bought our house one of the things that we loved the most about it was how light and bright it was. It turns out that light and bright all of the time is a little overwhelming, so even though we now have blinds, shades, or shutters on all of the windows, I need to get some curtains on the upstairs windows ASAP so it will be a little less oven-like up there.
It was a little tricky to get a photo since my son's room isn't very big. I was standing outside the door, leaning over the stair railing to get this one. I have loved this Joel Dewberry Notting Hill print since I first saw it and I was more than happy to have an excuse to buy a whole bunch of it.
The fabric is sateen and I used blackout lining to make the curtains so these were heavy! Plus my husband has been working 15+ hours a day, so it was my job to hang up the curtain rod. It was the first time I have ever used a drill and I had to look up how to put the drill bit into the drill on YouTube so I am pretty proud of getting it up!
I used this tutorial for making hidden tab curtains and, other than managing a massive amount of heavy fabric, was pretty easy. I will definitely be using these directions again to make curtains for all the other zillion windows in the house.
