BB quilt and some pattern drafting

What have I been up to since I finished the Windmolen quilt? Couple of things… Firts, I made another quilt top using linen, repurposed sheets (not vintage), and some stash fabrics. This is the first time I tried the big blocks, kind-of random sized. I cal it the BB quilt, or my shabby chic quilt. It is about 36×46 in and it is awaiting sandwiching… The picture does not do it justice, it looks much better on my ironing board, where it sits right now.

Second… I have been planning sewing up a few more camisoles, using the vintage sheets that are lying everywhere in my studio. Remember the first two – Flo and Mo. I really liked Flo, but Mo…. I liked the way it turned out, but I did not care so much for the pattern. So there will be Mo 2.0 in the near future. And maybe a couple more. But I have realized I needed to learn more about pattern drafting, which is what I have been researching for the past week or so. So, today, right after I finish writing this, I will be making my first sloper. Wish me luck. I will be back soon to report on the progress…
