Scallop Bunting

I'm taking part in a Curves class through Stitched in Color.  We're only a few days into it, but I think it's going to be GREAT!


This week we are working on basic curves so today I got to make a scalloped bunting.  The instructor, Rachel, said it would be an easy project and she didn't disappoint.  It just took me a little bit of time this morning and this afternoon, and it was DONE!

I'm so happy to have finished a project today.  I needed some project instant gratification.  I have too many going on that are sssslllllooooowwww going.  So nice to have such a quick start to finish time on a project.  Aaahhhh...



I chose to do it in yellows, and grays, because one day I hope to decorate my little girl's room in those colors.  Right now she is in the nursery downstairs, but when baby #2 is on the way I'll be moving her to a room upstairs.  I've already started to refinish some furniture for her room and bought some material for cushions, but it's so nice to have a finished project for the room.



Know what else is great about this project?  I used materials from my stash.  Yep.  For once I didn't buy new material for a project.  :)  I would have loved it with a soft yellow bias strip along the top, but didn't want to take the time to go to the store so I settled with the white.  I used yellow thread though to sew the scallops to the bias tape.  It was my little compromise.

Thanks to Rachel for holding such a great class!

  1. I love your color choices! I always want to decorate in yellow and gray and somehow it doesn't happen. It's so soft and yet still cheery!

  2. I've never seen a girls room decorated in yellow, gray and white, but - wow - that's going to be lovely. So very feminine and yet not pink. So glad you enjoyed the project!

  3. I love grey and yellow together too and that will make for a really nice colour scheme for your daughter's room (eventually). I also know what you mean about needing a quick project. Sometimes it feels like you're making stuff all the time but don't have anything yet to show for it. Awesome project. Thanks so much for sharing at our Link It Up Thursday party.
