We moved into our house back at the beginning of June and, to be honest, its no where near where I’d like it to be (decorations wise).
Things keep getting pushed back, I keep putting it off, etc.
This past Summer my mom and dad gave us a hand-me-down sleeper sofa that we’re keeping in our back room. This back room is a triple threat: Sewing studio, David’s home office (he works from home), and guest room. Boom.
Anyway, the couch needs to be recovered. But y’all. That is expeeeeensive. I know I could do it. OR at least make a cute slip cover.
That’s where International Quilt Market 2011 comes in.
Last Fall I saw the CAH-UTEST patchwork quilt at the Freespirit booth. I fell in love immediately.
See what I mean?
Well, after some time thinking, I remembered this little e-book I bought a while back from Pink and Polka Dot. Its literally been sitting on my desktop for over a year. I bought it thinking I would get right on that and I haven’t. Obviously.
Looks simple enough, so I’m thinking: I’ll make a muslin first and then sew the patchwork slipcover (using the muslin for correct dimensions). Attach the muslin to the back of the slip cover & put over our couch. OH LOOK, A NEW COUCH!
I’m sew excited and will obviously keep y’all up to date on my progress!
This is a HUGE project. Probably the biggest one I’ve ever undertaken. But, I am overly excited!
