I started this quilt last summer and I put it away because I became distracted by another project. All you quilters now how that is...anyway I digress...when I was sewing the pieced blocks I could tell that my piecing skills have greatly improved over the last few month which gives me a tremendous amout of joy. I know, I know I get excited over the littlest things. I'm going to back this quilt with bright orange minkee.
Close up of the pieced block:
My second project is from the 10 minute block video I posted in a previous post. This quilt was so fun to put together I started making another one...lol I'm going to put chocolate brown minkee on the back of this one. I loved the plaid but working with plaid makes me nervous since I'm not quite sure how to make it line up. I made one mistake on this quilt. I turned the one block so the brown plaid is next to the brown plaid border..oh well...I'm not going to unpick it...:)
I got out the compass and started doodling around with it. I would encourage you to do the same. It is a lot of fun and really releases that creative spirit.
I've got another purse design on the drawing board and an idea brewing for February's stitchery pattern. Have a wonderful quilty week.
