My Winter Time Mini Quilt is finished! My latest free-pieced, raw edge appliqued mini~ Frightful Outside, Delightful Inside. . .This one travels to my swap partner in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.Though, not a good picture~the label is a pair of mittens held together with mini rick rack.
Close up of the machine quilting; not without injury~I grazed my finger with the needle~reason #101 why to love a long arm. . .The sky is adorn with machine-stitched snowflakes sewn with an aqua iridescent thread. My partner's request was for something happy, I hope this fits the bill.
We just received the latest collection Sugar, by Patricia Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics this week at HRQ. I've given new life to the old-fashioned cross block (I think it's more of a plus sign) using a modern fabric palette. The quilt will measure 60 x 60 once complete and is perfect for a fat quarter bundle with 12-15 pieces. It took 20 minutes to cut the entire top, but 2 hours fooling with color placement until I was happy with it.
Enjoy your week, my friends. We're due to have clear days in the mid-sixties~and yes, the kids are already questioning when the pool is going to be ready. . .Spring Break begins March 15th, I'm ready to have them all home for a bit. . .too bad the week is scheduled with hair cuts and dentist appointments. . .
