But before we look at my design wall, you MUST look at my completed Eleanor Burn’s Egg Money Quilt. I am really pleased with it. Also, please note the llittle bald head right behind the top of the quilt. Isn’t he cute?
And here is my design wall. On the right is the UFO I am going to begin work on later this week. I made this feathered star almost two years ago in a group class some guild members put together. I was so very pleased with how this came out, designed a table topper for it and then…nothing. So it has come up to the top of the UFO list and it will get done!
And here are the five blocks for Esther Aliu’s Heart’s Desire BOM. The top and bottom blocks are not complete but far enough along for me to feel I might have them done by the time she gives us the next installment on May 15th.
Book (Vook) review: Several weeks ago I was asked if I would read and review an e-book on quilting.
I will start by saying that I have an iPad and a Nook and have already been reading e-books and e-magazines on it so this part was comfortable for me.
This particular book is written for someone who may be interested in quilting but knows nothing about it. It covers the structure of a quilt, fabrics, colors, tools, etc. And the best part it that every chapter starts with a video, introducing the subject.
As to content, I found it somewhat superficial. By that I mean that many terms and/or ideas (example: batting) were not well explained, but only skimmed over. If I were a beginning quilter I would have no idea at that point what batting really is That said, many ideas were introduced and, much like a survey course in college, if you were still interested, you would know that you needed more to learn about it.
I really like the concept of this book but wish it had been more fully fleshed out.
Now, for more quilty fun, head on over to Patchwork Times.
