I've got 650 HSTs done, and 190 more to go. I'm making a queen size version of joanandmikesquarepants
, this one is called Lorisquarepants. She's coming into town the week of 8/10 - so I better get busy huh? It's gonna be a close one. There's close to 100 different fabrics in this one, blues, reds, greens and browns. She wanted tall greens, but I just couldn't do it. And I thought if I have enough different fabrics in there may be she won't notice :) I do have more greens than anything else, but I have a feeling you won't be able to tell. I hope all those different fabrics work well together and there isn't a sore thumb. I don't think I've ever used this many different fabrics. I feel like I cheated on these. Not only did I use the go cutter, but I layered the fabric so the right sides were together. All I had to do was sew these. I am definitely in love with my go cutter! And that jelly roll was inspiration for me. I kept telling myself if I finished all those HSTs, I would let be allowed to play with those cherry strips for just a little while. Didn't get them done but maybe next weekend.
And I have a finish. I was going to send this off to happy chemo, but then I remembered I have a chemo situation right here that could use some happy. My sister in law is going back in for chemo. I sure hope this time it really works. I have one of the Hi quilts left over to donate and I'm giving this one to her, filled with lots of love and warm thoughts. Details on the quilt - Hobbs 80/20 batting (hmm surprised?) Perma Soft thread (my new favorite) on top, bottom line in the bobbin, fabrics from the Kate Spain Serenade line. Wait, I just realized now that this one is finished, I don't have anything on my "waiting to be quilted list". I really need to get to that jelly roll :)
