This third week of April seemed busy with lots of things outside my sewing studio. It seems funny that I kind of feel like I have to fight to protect my quilting time. Many retirees say they are busier than ever and cannot imagine how they ever had time to have a job.
Anyway, here are some projects in the works at QuiltGuilt headquarters:
I made two new blocks for the mystery BOM. One was as they showed it. It is English paper piecing and the task was to make hexagons on the block. A look:
The second block just did not move me at all so I designed one I like better, still using a large hexagon to be a big sun. I’m proud that I just did it! A new design for the whole block.
I am about to begin quilting my king bedspread quilt. The quilt top has been done for over 2 years. It started out as barely queen size but I liked the cheerful design so much that I added borders to make it large enough for our king bed. Here it is before I added 2 more borders, ready for layering and quilting:
I also have taken my first ever art class and love working with acrylic paint. The art class had a little gallery showing this seek My primitive first attempts to record some of life in Ecuador:
You can probably guess that I love color.
Have a terrific week. Do something fun for your self this week.
