I was able to get a few rows sewn together rows sewn together on this one this weekend.
I know I'm suppose to be machine quilting, but the scraps were screaming to me when Bonnie posted Christmas lights. I had a lot of batik scraps from a couple of Judy Niemyer quilts (did anyone else get some of her patterns when they were on sale? I got 6 for under 30, sooooo happy). Scraps where mostly hot pinks, hot orange and jewel tones. I love the Christmas lights pattern but wasn't sure how to do it with the scraps I had. So I made the block in EQ7 and started playing around. I think I finally decide on the using only one of the blocks (not using the star block) and twisting things up a bit. I"m using a purple as my constant. Everything is cut and I'm trying to do this as a leaders and enders quilt, so I don't feel quite a guilty. We'll see how it turns out, I think for a teenage girl it'll be nice.
