sessoms blast from the past.

With the¬†giveaway I have going on, I thought I’d take a quick trip back to the (almost) very beginning of my Sessoms throw. Other than some sketches and a few lone blocks, it all started with this sample. Oh how things have changed!

At the time, I remember being drawn to the idea of mixing warm shirtings with bright, contemporary prints, which I still think is a fun juxtaposition. I also went a little nuts with skinny borders, partly for looks, and partly because I was running out of fabric.

And I’m embarrassed that the top still isn’t quilted! Yikes. Usually I’m not this bad since I enjoy the quilting so much. I can’t remember what lured me away, but now that she’s out, I want to put her to use. I should get on it. I’ve been wanting something new on my bed.

If you haven’t already, leave a comment on Monday’s post by midnight tomorrow to win some fabulous fabric and a copy of the pattern.

  1. That looks like it will be a stunning version of Sessoms! It’s funny how we get drawn away from projects, even when we like how they are turning out, isn’t it? Happens to me all. the. time.
