Someone asked for the pattern, I have the EQ7 project, if you're interested send me an email and I'll get it off to you. I also tried to put instructions together for someone who didn't have EQ7, those are available if you are interested as well, the patterns are paper pieced. Now the standard disclaimer is that I have never done this before and I did it after the fact...I gave it a good try and think for the most part I remembered everything :) Again if you're interested send me an email I will send you what I have. Or if you know how to add PDFs to a blog, let me know and I'll just add it to the blog. Thanks to all for the encouragement, it really helped to get it finished!!
My waiting to be quilted list is still pretty large though, need to get working on that and get those out of the way.
Now on to something very very simply, squares, straight lines, maybe a string block or two...
boxes in boxes quilt that I just fell in love with and had to make one. Her's is bright and cheery. As you' ve seen from my quilts, I tend to like darker colors, so mine is a little, hmmm, ok a lot darker. I've been doing this one as a leader and ender project since early Feb. Finally got all the blocks done and added sashing today. Oh nice straight easy lines, it was wonderful!! I hope to move something off the waiting to be quilted list before this one gets added. I'm hooked on leaders and enders now. I'm going to do Fair and Square from Bonnie Hunter's new book. I have a set of 30 of the ugliest fat quarters anyone has every seen. It was a grab bag and something I'll never do again, but they are lighter colors! And the squares will be cut up really little. That and string blocks - isn't that what you do with ugly fabric, make string blocks and cut it up really small?
And just for fun I started a bargello quilt. Daughter number 3 wants me to make one for her guy. We really like her guy, so I'm gonna do it, but wanted to make a small one as practice first. I didn't have the colors that were supposed to be used and didn't want to buy fabric, so I used what I had. Here' s the picture of the work in progress and what the pattern looks like. There was only so much I could do on this one, cuz I really needed easy for a little while.
Well, that was quite a week!! Don't think this week will have as much sewing in it, but I made up for that this week! Stop over a Judy's to see what others have on their design wall.
