This weekend is the annual Tri County Quilt Tour. I've participated every year and my husband even took today off so I could go. But I find myself feeling like my time is better spent at home, working on what I have. I think I have reached a total saturation point with fabric and projects right now. Heaven knows, there is no shortage of projects here!
I haven't blogged in a bit, but I have been doing stuff...
Last weekend I made another name pillow (from the "Personalized Name Pillow" pattern by Kimberbell Designs):
They are such a good gift-- fun to make and always so well received.
And the dreaded roll o' fabric? It's gone!!!!
Look at that empty roll! It took eight quilts (and 6 years!), but I finally used it all. Huzzah! Just that little strip of fabric remaining now-- I figure I'll use that in the binding of one or two of them.
I realize now that I haven't shared a pic of the final top I made from the roll. All I have is a kind of bad instagram pic:
But you get the idea? This is another design from the book, Simple Quilts from Me and My Sister Designs: Easy as 1, 2, 3. This is "Easy as 11." I had to change it up a bit as I ran out of fabric-- so I dropped a couple of rows and mine ended up at 48" square. It may not be the most aesthetically pleasing size for this design (it really does look better as a rectangle), but it works.
I've managed to quilt up four of my five recent roll o' fabric quilts. Today I basted the remaining one:
Since I am hoping to spend some quality time in the quilt cave today, I went ahead and wrote up a to-do list to help keep me focused.
And look at that-- one thing checked off the list already. Woo!
Next up: quilting!
