Completions and New Projects
It’s a flimsy. I am really happy with how it is looking; I just wish I could remember when I came up with this layout and decided on the fabrics for it. As I have said before, the embroidered blocks were online swap blocks that have sat around here for a few years, the others I made as alternate blocks. I must say that while I was putting this together I began to think that it was a might too busy but once they were all together, I really liked it.
I also got the binding ready and this is what it will look like once I get it quilted. That won’t be happening this month but plan to get it on the frame in October.
And here is one other thing I finished. This is an applique I got from Sharon at Varooman’s Quilts. I am an Auburn graduate and an Auburn Fan and when I saw this eagle on her blog I was so excited. I wrote her and asked if it was for sale and she let me use it. It is something she drew herself (I sure wish I could draw) and didn’t it come out beautifully. I will be wearing this shirt when we go to Auburn’s first home game on the 15th.
So, you might ask, what’s on my Design Wall now. Well, nothing. BUT here’s what is on my Design ironing board:
First we have Teapot #2 from Rhonda. I have the fusible ready and just have to pick out the fabrics.
Second, I also prepared the fusible for another project (new) I need to get started. This one is pretty simple and should be fun and quick.
And third, I have pulled fabric for the Color Palette Challenge for September. I have no idea what I will be doing with them but at least I am ready when inspiration hits, I hope.
And lastly I am sharing the first signs of Fall in South AL. We get few of the bright colors that are seen in the north but every once in a while we do get a bright spot. It is still warm down here (that’s why the pool is so comfortable each afternoon) but even here it will be much cooler soon.
Now, I am going to Patchwork Times and then to What a Hoot to see what others are sharing . And then I am off to the studio to work on all those things you just read about, and maybe a little cleaning, too.
