I wanted to wear them. I wanted to love them. I wanted to lounge in them all day whilst my little one naps and plays. I wanted to make a pair for every day of the week. But McCall's 3019 does me no favors. :(
What went wrong? The waist was too high, the stride (a polite way of saying the crotch) a little long, and too much fabric floating around the rear since I'm flat as a pancake. The upshot of it all is the pants do not flatter.
So it's back to quilting. I've started Antonio's Urban Chic quilt. He wanted a simple, modern design with a neutral palette- black, gray, yellow, white. I threw in a little aqua to make it pop.
I cut off the selvedges so I can't name all the fabrics. There are a few Art Gallery fabrics, a Joel Dewberry, and a couple whose provenance I don't know. The quilt will be a little bigger than called for (seven blocks across and seven down). I'll need to buy a few more prints for the center pieces.
I was hoping to find photos of Urban Chic quilts that others have made. A Google search pretty much only turns up the quilts on the Artichoke Collection site. Anyone out there have any links?
