On the quilting front - I have not done any sewing.....but I think I shall work on my daughter's quilt. That would be the RIGHT thing to do. BUT...... Oh I know...I shall go to the quilt store in town in the morning to see what else I can buy that I don't need.
Last time I went there they had fat quarters for $1.00 and yardarge for $5.00 of Northcott Fabric Line called Hanky Panky by Ro Gregg. Who could resist those prices and they had some of the entire line. So with them I have put together this pattern called Porch Swing by Bella Moon. I had seen it made up at the Creative Sewing Festival Spring show in Toronto with April Cornell "Sunshine Fabric".
It was gorgeous made out of the Sunshine Fabric Line so I bought the pattern. HOWEVER, I was quite surprised to find out that the whole thing is made only with one block - and a LOG CABIN block at that. How did I miss that? I didn't need a pattern to do that. So when I got the Hanky Panky fabric so cheap I decided I would use that. I still have a final border to put on it. Maybe that will get done tommorrow???? So here it is so far:
Here's a couple of close ups of the fabric.....Geez, I take awful pictures....The colours are much nicer in person. My daughter has the same camera so she is going to have to show mama how to take a proper picture. I've seen her pics and they are nice..must just be me or our lighting here.
Then again..I really should pull some weeds before the neighbours think I have abandoned the house. I hear they send the city in to clean up the yard and send you the bill after it becomes an eye sore so I could wait for that....wonder how much that costs? Probably more then I would save on fabric - even if they had more at $1.00 a fat quarter.
Have a great weekend..thanks for stopping by.
