I spent some time over the weekend working on the new blog banner. I've got it down as a template and can now change the photo easy peasy.
I also went into the sewing room and cut logs for the Log Cabin blocks that I plan to make for the alternate setting blocks in the Homespun BOM. The paper is my EQ6 template sheet that I printed out so I could figure out the size I needed to cut the logs. I should have used EQ to draft the 6" version of the block you can see under the purple folder and the logs. That block is the 1930's Block. Now I need to sit down and start sewing the log cabin blocks together.
I've been waiting for this book to come. I pre-ordered it from American Quilter's Society in August for a printing delivery date in September. But it was backordered and didn't get delivered until yesterday. I wanted it so I could learn how to draft my own scalloped borders. It is a very quick and easy read. I wish I could have checked it out of a library somewhere rather than spend the money on it. That calla lily quilt on the cover is a pattern inside the book.
Remember when I talked about the incredibly fuzzy photo of the basted quilts? Well I finally got a good one. That purple in the center is part of the backing of 'Dance!' The quilts on either side of it are the Skillbuilder panels I purchased and talked about in a previous post.
I bet Sweet P over at Coffee Time Quilt Studio on the World Series. Loser was to give a goodie bag to the winner. So Sweet P, you can expect a package at the beginning of the week.
I just realized that I let my third blogiversary slip by. Boohoo. Oh well, but I'm also coming up on my 300th post and will do something special as a giveaway on that post.
