Summer has finally arrived – at least for a few days. Today’s forecast is 28° C. Some of you may smile mildly but these temperatures are not made for a northern girl like me. Especially not if you live in an attic apartment with no air condition but the open windows. A light eastern breeze is making this a little more comfortable. 🙂
Here’s another project from the UFO Lottery. It’s one of my chessboard projects, I think it was #4 in the series. The fabrics are not the best of quality, some cheap hand dyed cotton. But I liked the colours so I bought the fabrics anyway. I cut both pieces into squares and sewed them back together in a chessboard pattern, one from left to right, the other one from top to bottom, keeping the original order in which I cut them (my so-called ‘cut & sew’ technique).
For the border strips I chose a peach fabric and for the back some decorator’s fabric (read: curtain) from my stash. Should be finished sometime next week.
