Despite flinching and waiting for the power to go out, what with storms and tornado watches most of the day.
I'm super stuffy.
Here's what I did:
3 blocks for my first ever block lotto entry
I love love love batiks, so I'm kind of hoping to win this month.
I think I picked a layout for the girl version of the Across the Sea QAL:
I haven't sewn it yet. Just sewing the boy version (after squaring up all the blocks and having to cut borders and more edging bits) took longer than I estimated.
Here's the finished top for the boy version. (It is still in need of pressing.)
It's a really cute quilt. I'm praying I don't mess it up with the quilting.
I picked 2 (because I apparently have to do everything twice) palettes for the Dead Simple QAL:
It's WAY out of my comfort zone with colors...YELLOW, ORANGE, AND PINK.
I'm trying to come to terms with them....plus, I think it will be nice to have bright colors going into cooler weather.
I'm thinking of making just a lap quilt out of these.
I'm making another disappearing 9 patch kid quilt...I've decided this is my meditative action. It's easy. I get a result quickly...I have lots of people that could take it. I'm coveting the monkeys and birds on this one. I bought batiks this weekend to make one for my dad. I haven't cut into them yet.
Here's the layout of the monkey quilt:
I'm still trying to decide what to do with Mom's quilt. I contacted one pro-quilter for long arming, but she wasn't local and she hasn't responded. I'm ok with mailing one off. Does anyone have someone to recommend?
