That's one of the most interesting parts- from whence they came! Wonder if I'll ever finish that quilt?
Near where that envelope was, there are a number of plastic boxes with projects-to-do in them. At least 1 box had several more swaps in it, 2 different ones with cats, one with stars, one 9-patches, etc. Obviously this was before we got our American Eskimo Dogs because everything is cats, cats, cats!
oh yeah, there's this Mariner's Compass, also. Gee, I'd forgotten all about that one! I'm going to have to put finishing these on the schedule.....somewhere....
Here's the quilt I'm working on finishing now. It's had me in a blocked state since June. I just could not get it going! I started it twice, ripped it all out twice, and now we're quilting it the 3rd time but it's looking quite ok now. What a relief to kinda get my mojo back!
The pattern is by Judy Martin in her Log Cabin book. This one is Snake River Log Cabin and it's well made (not by me). I've quilted a couple of these and wanted something different than what I did on the others. That's probably what stumped me but it seemed like I just couldn't get it to flow!Double ovals in the green parts this time instead of feathers, and in the large green centers, there are the double ovals and a swirl in the center. Doesn't it feel good when something finally works out?
The other day I mentioned GO!ing using a pattern by Pat Speth. Here's an example of the blocks using all scraps-- LOVE using up those small pieces of fabric and seeing the pile in that basket going down. I have 9 blocks made but it's in the To-Do pile until the green top is finished being quilted.OOOPSSS! I've got that outside piece on the left on backwards! Good thing for digital pics to find out early that it's got a booboo!
GIVEAWAY! Did I mention I'll have my 1st give-away in October? I'm trying to pick out something neat. Should it be a layer cake? a jelly roll? some yardage? some notions? some FQs? some patterns? a book? What a quandary!
