Whew! Here it is Saturday, and I am actually getting time to breathe. The kids are watching movies and I am in my sewing room, cleaning, organizing, working on this and that.
I am sqaring up the placemats for my brother, getting ready to add binding.
I am getting the quilting design together for my scrappy quilt from www.quiltville.com, like this quilt http://quiltville.com/stringquiltingprimer.shtml. Then I am going to quilt as you go from Keryn Emmerson's book, Beautiful Quilts As You Go. I am using a sort of Hawaiian design from EQ6. I got EQ6 for Christmas and I love it. But then I loved EQ5 too. Anyway, I am still messing around with it, as you can tell.
I am putting away the triangles from 1000 Pyramids. And looking for a pattern for the leftovers. Anyone know of patterns with 60 degree triangles?
I am adding the finishing touches to my Round the Year Quilt. My quilt group started this January 2006. Everyone made a January block, only the size was stated. It could be pieced, appliqued, embellished whatever. Then we passed the block to another person and got a block. Everyone added a February block. Once again, only the size limited our options. By the end of the year, we had each made twelve blocks, one for each quilt, and received a quilt back again. It was really a great experience and everyone kept up, and all the quilts are beautiful. We are planning a show session in Febrary.
