OMG where on earth did 3 weeks just go... Well, never mind...I won't make excuses, but rather share some of the things I've been working on.
My deliberate choice of bright colours is certainly helping to lift the blahs and I now have a top ready for quilting and a start of something that I think might grow a little bigger before being finished.
Here is the top that I completed over half term using the Missouri Star Quilts pattern that they share in this video. It was a delight to make, but as I mentioned before the edges are all bias edges and extra care needed to be taken. I carefully measured and pinned each border -see Liz...I took note- :o) so that the edges won't ripple when it is quilted. Once completed it will heading for Project Linus.
This block (below) was started as a sample for a class I'm teaching, but I decided that it didn't really show off all the components I needed, so I remade my samples and had enough flying geese from my old sample to put this jazzy border around the sides. It measures 20" at the moment, but I think it needs to grow a bit more before being called done. If anyone has any suggestions for the next round, I'm all ears.
In other news...there is to be a new addition to the family...no not that kind of addition!!!! but rather a new sewing addition. My sewing corner has been cleared and I'm just waiting for a delivery date before I reveal what I've bought. Ooooh I do love leaving you in suspense :o)
Until next time...♥
