I'm still sewing over here. There is a blog called:
Quilting is my therapy, and that is so true for me right now. All this sewing, coming up with & completing projects I find therapeutic. Soothes me... This quilt top to the right is my variation from this tutorial at In Color Order by Jeni Baker. I made it for a total of 48" by 48" because it is going to a baby. Thinking of backing it with minky, but I'm a bit nervous to do that as I haven't worked with it before, and it sounds like it can be a bit tricky...
The second picture is where all the points meet. Not half bad, and no getting all uptight involved...
That's where I stand today, I do hope it lasts because usually I am trying to be perfect, and it is sooooo very exhausting!!
To the bottom left is a crib size quilt, that I will add onto in order to enlarge it to closer to twin size for a favorite, much-loved friend. I actually wanted to do the throw size from this free Star Bright Quilt pattern at Swim Bike Quilt. Katie Blakesley is another fabulous quilter & blogger! Anyhoo- I didn't read carefully, before cutting!!! and I cut 6" blocks rather than the 9" blocks needed for the throw size (I thought it was too easy). But, that's just fine, I shall make it work. I'm thinking of bordering it with a deep red triangular border... Then I will continue to add on from there. This is where perfection-not-required really works for me. In the past, I was really into my penmanship and if I "goofed" I didn't consider it a mistake, I incorporated it into the design. That habit is serving me well right now. Thanks for listening.... Liz
P.S.- I added red buttons for eyes to the bluebirds on the wall-hanging to the bottom right!
