I had so many projects due right before Christmas that I've been feeling a little burnt out lately. Also, I have absolutely no looming deadlines, for a change! (Well, only if I choose to submit to an artist call in the next month or so.) Usually, I'm madly finishing some project or the other and thinking how am I going to get this finished, bind it, label it, make the cover bag and still get any sleep this week? It's so nice to have a bit of a "breather".
While I'm deciding what my next project should be, I decided to take a fun class that has be calling me for some time now. It is a class in making a footstool, a Turban Footstool, as the class is titled. Here is my almost finished circle. 7 of the 8 wedges are assembled and I'm auditioning which fabrics to use for the last wedge. I made this using only leftovers from the butcher aprons I make for an annual Christmas bazaar so the fabric weight is heavier than regular quilting cotton. It should hold up nicely over time.
