We made it to the weekend! I did a little of this and that this week and tried to finish up some quilt tops hiding away in my closet.
In my post a couple of weeks ago I added a link to Lori’s blog…and then I noticed she had a book out! I’ve been feeling stuck-in-a-rut with my quilting, so it was perfect timing. So this week I’ve been trying some new designs. Nothing too crazy, but still a little out of my box (so anything other than loopty loops!).
You can always tell which end I start on because the quilting goes from pretty horrible to pretty good by the end! If you need some new quilting inspiration I highly recommend this book.
I’m teaching on a quilting cruise next year! Come cruise with me! I was supposed to go last year…and then it was changed and rescheduled, and I got pregnant. Whoops. Anyways…come cruise with me! Info is here. I promise I won’t get pregnant again and have to cancel. 😉
I started cutting a new project last night. I love starting new projects!
This girl is 10 months old. Where is the PAUSE button?!
I’ve had quite a few emails asking for a picture of the finished Star Wars quilt I made my son for Christmas (details in this post). This is about as good as it gets until it’s not raining buckets outside everyday. It’s super simple…just 8 1/2″ plain blocks and four patch blocks with four – 4 1/2″ cut squares. Make 44 four patch blocks and cut 44 plain blocks and lay it out into 11 rows of 8 blocks each for a quilt of 64″ x 88″. I didn’t figure out fabric requirements but my guesstimate is about 11 half yards would be enough. Super easy!
Have a great weekend!
