My modern bento box swap squares! They were waiting patiently in a cupboard, knowing that someday I would get to them. Upon review the second round of swap blocks were received sometime in October, so that's not too bad, somehow it felt like they had been loitering for almost a year. Oh my, but it's busy! I'm thinking it's gonna hang on the design wall for a day or so, perhaps it will grow on me. Not that I don't like it, mind you, but it is a riot of color dontcha think? This one is going to be a test candidate for quilt as you go, I just need to decide if it will be in two or three or more sections...still pondering where the sashing in back will go and if the quilting will be straight line, circles or meandering. This would be a good time to experiment...Interestingly enough, the DH loves it, not just likes, but loves...never would have imagined that, he's not always big on the bright colors sometimes, but I do love it when he gives an unsolicited opinion on these things.
Also in progress is another baby quilt for a friend of the family who recently gave birth to twin boys, which of course means that I have to make another after I;ve figured out the borders for the first. The twins also have a big brother and I do have this quilt top (pictured below) finished and with no recipient in mind.....hmmmmmmm, perhaps, ok it's really pretty definite that I will quilt that one up for him. After all, he has to compete with not one but two new objects in the house to steal his Mom's time and energy! And who doesn't need a big brother quilt after all?
Sounds like I need to quit typing and get back to sewing, good thing it's a long weekend, Toodles!
I am a crafty chick who lives in SE Washington (we lovingly refer to it as the armpit of Washington or the ever-brown portion of the evergreen state!) with my husband of 19 years and our two boys who are 14 and 18.
I am not really sure how long I have been quilting, my best guess would be about 5 years or so. As much as I love to piece, I am totally in awe of applique and very eager to continue learning the process. I am inspired by and admire the creativity of those who blog, but have found that I spend more time reading their blogs instead of spending time creating my own treasures...it is with firm resolve that I vow to turn that around! With that being said, thank you for visiting, drop by anytime and leave a comment or two! Those always give me a thrill...
