No-reply bloggers: Please set up an email address so I can address/answer questions. I LOVE comments and reply to them all. However, it is really discouraging to have thought up and typed a reply only to see that it is going to go nowhere. I do try to remember to look at the return address so that this doesn’t happen, but it rarely ever occurs to me that someone would ask a question with no way for me to answer. Now, on to the good stuff.
I had a very productive week.
This is the beginning of my Carpenter’s Star for Judy’s quilting feathers class. I got this fabric cut on Monday and sewn on Thursday. I got it on the wall right away, just so I could have something new and different for Design Wall Monday.
These are my main fabric choices, all from stash.
Then yesterday, after a great Mother’s Day dinner at the Mellow Mushroom, I got most of the rest of the blocks cut and sewn. I have cut the last 4 but they have to wait until today, after I get the laundry started. (Don’t you hate it when housework interferes with being on a creative run?)
But wait, there’s more. On Monday I gathered the fabrics for the May Color Challenge. See the banana fabric? I bought that in January. When I saw it I thought of the 0 point value of fruit, especially bananas, at Weight Watchers. I was going to make something to wear to my meetings but nothing ever came to mind so now they are going to decorate my house.
They are now 2 placemats and a table runner for our dining room table. Here are the tops, and the backing fabric, waiting to take their turn on the frame. I think they are going to look great on the table during the summer.
I also worked on another project, completing the top but since it is a gift I can’t show it for a while.
Oh, I did one more thing. I collected my fabric for the “Ugly Fabric Swap.” This was really hard for me. I found that I have very little “ugly” fabric and what I did have didn’t go together at all. I also found that I feel guilty sending ugly fabric to an unsuspecting quilter. But those are the rules so off they go today.
And, off you go to check out Judy’s Design Wall.
