Happy National Quilting Day! Ha, ha, I know that doesn't matter to some of you, but I find it cool to have a "national" day of celebrating. I was sewing on the quilting frame for a little guy named Logan.
These fabrics are mostly Debbie Mumm, and I think it was Ginny's first quilt that she did the choosing without my advice (but she was pretty safe, knowing it was from one fabric line,*vbs*).
Again, I drew up an easy to accomplish quilt, and off she went sewing.
This quilt is due in for a birthday gift in April, but so is another one that we don't have all the fabric chosen yet, we will though....
The other thing I was able to do was catch up on some quilty blogs! The list was way over 1000 unread posts, so I do have to admit to some skimming, er, "speed reading" at times. There were several dresden projects, these popped out in my view:
- here's one with Amy Butler, same inspiration with these bright prints!
- Shay showed us hers, all plates completed. Yea!
- Kim was gifted a beauty by Stephanie of Loft Creations.
- I was honored to be inspiration to Amy, thank you! Her fabrics are perfect.
Boy, I am hoping to keep mine coming! There are 28 of them pressed, and waiting for the next step.
I'm stuck on a decision, match the centers? I made the circle template and actually sewed 2 on, but they seem to disappear since they are all bright and used in the plate already. I don't want to use the gray, I think it would recede, I'd rather have the circle be defined- stand out, but I may need to put a new piece of fabric in to make that happen. Little decisions. So I'm slowed down on the project, but there are plenty of to- do's on the project list anyway.
I've missed a few giveaways, but my friend Jennifer shared about a new blogger, Rhonda, from the Cumberland Gap area. That is back home for me, friends! Go meet Rhonda and this colorful giveaway.
Hope you all have a great Sunday!
