pixie making...part one


I have started a pixie quilt. I planned for it to be a lap size but it seems to be growing (in my head) Once, I got nine blocks finished and took a look at the layout, I wanted to add more to it. This is what happens to me, when I don't stick with a pattern. It's a lot of fun this way but also a bit mind boggling. It's just how I create....what can I say.


I wanted it to be an easy sew because I have a lot on my plate right now and wanted to be able to sew all the projects on my list. I arranged the layout on my computer and figured out color placement & went with 2.5" strips and squares - making 8" blocks.  Now, I'm at the point of whether to do sashing? border? ...more blocks?
Decisions!


One thing is for sure, I love to cut out the little pixies. This is really a sweet fabric collection & I can tell you, there are more makes on the horizon. It's one of my favorite color combinations & so far my favorite collection by Tasha. There's something about striped tights & those bunnies....am I right?
Catches me every time...fun!



I'll figure things out for the quilt, while a spend some time in the sewing room tonight. Pixie making continues....I'll see you soon.

    Outstanding fabric! It reminds me of my childhood, images like those pixies were more commonplace. Love the fussy cutting, of course, what else could you do? Those images almost stomp their tiny feet & demand to be fussy cut. You wouldn't want to lose one bit of cuteness! I am looking forward to seeing your creation. How cute are those little hats?
