Three things to be happy about:
(1) the click of poker chips (if poker is your thing!)
(3) rereading Peanuts comic strips (Linus rocks!)
Have you done a Linus quilt (or quilts) yet? That's on my "to-start-doing" list!
I finished up the little cobblestone quilt I was making for my neighbor's new baby, I wanted to take it to guild meeting for show n tell before giving it to them.
This pattern and layout is from the workshop I taught at last month's meeting, it will be interesting to see how many finishes there are! You can see some of the blocks they made here
There were some very pretty fabric combinations being used.
I used the fleece I got from Hancock's on the back, it was a joy to work with! To quilt it I just made a wavy horizontal line, every so often doing a sort of innie-outie circular twirl. I echoe'd that line from side to side, making more random twirls (does that make sense?).
Anyway, here's a closeup! Good enuf for a 3- month-old baby who won't critique it - by the time he's old enough it'll be pretty worn anyway!
Well that's it for now, guild meeting today. The center where we meet bumped us up an hour earlier today, they rented the room out from under us for a party later on. Let's see... quilt guild meeting vs wedding reception... hmmmm...
Sew forth and sew on!
