(1) a blog makeover by Madame Samm :o)
(2) something that just "clicks"
(3) a bowl of chili
Thanks everybody for your comments on my new banner! I'm loving it, and I'm still amazed at how Madame Samm matched me so well [looking over shoulder]. She's truly amazing!
It's February already - where did January go?? So, a new month means I get to work on a different UFO, #8 according to Nancy's random generator.
Below you see parts laid out, the blocks finish at 8x8:
Here you see four completed rows. I just draped them across the table, didn't feel like decluttering my design wall! Does the quilting world have an official name for a cluttered design wall??
There's not too much left to do on this one, including a border decision, but that's no big deal. Almost any "non-busy" fabric will look nice with the variety of bright colors in this one! I think the real advantage of using the beautiful African fabrics is that you just can't go wrong, no matter what combination you go with.
So that's my UFO project for the month. I'll probably show more progress on this one as I go along... it's on the UFO list twice because of all the pieces!
