This weekend I will be mostly…

This quilt needs finishing in the next 5 days and getting in the post with the Thumbtacks quilt for magazine deadlines. Every weekday I do a little bit more, so maybe it will be a flimsy by the weekend and I can quilt it. I’m thinking of calling it “Connecting Four” – it’s four rows of four squares, with four corner triangles added, plus the secondary pattern makes 4×4 on point squares. It won’t be that big- about 55″ square.

Sunday sees me over at Addie’s in Cochrane. They’re technically closed on a Sunday, but “Carol’s Gang” (which costs $30) is a lock-in without alcohol but with fabric and sewing supplies! I’m not a big fan of lugging a machine around, and my little machine is no fun to sew on when I’ve been using my big metal one heavily because it feels crappy in comparison. I need to get myself some wheeled luggage so I can use the good machine. Anyway, my plan is to start glue piecing this horse, which will be my entry for Festival of Quilts… Before I do that though I need to decide shades and fabrics and make the freezer paper templates. I’m thinking of crazy piecing the larger areas for the first time, just because they’re so big. I’m hoping that won’t look really stupid.

Alex helped me with sticking this together

I also have a request. I’m looking for an 11″ square of each of these fabrics. I’ve found them for sale in the US but I refuse to pay $25 for a FQ to be posted here, that’s just ridiclous and prices me right out! If anyone can help though I can pay or trade or whatever. Thank you!

Scattered Needlepoint Areas from the Back

Often we encounter needlepoint where all the areas of color are small and are scattered. This Rogue Needlepoint canvas is almost a poster child for this. The only areas that are a continuous single color are the words. While most of the colors are used in many places, none of the areas are large. This […]

Pattern Review: Scroop Henrietta Maria Top

Hi Readers! I am undoubtedly a dresses girl, but sometimes I want to throw on some slim-fitting jeans.  The thing is, when I wear skinny jeans, I don’t want to pair them with a curve-hugging top, and instead want to opt for a longer looser fitting blouse that covers up my mid-section.  Yep, I don’t…
