I would love to be showing you a finished triangle quilt today, but it’s not done. Those of you who follow me on instagram have seen the tension issues I was having with the straight line quilting.
On Friday, I tossed my head and said, Quilting should be fun, I don’t want to stress about finished this quilt, it will be done when it’s done. Here is a picture of the quilting status.
So let’s drool over some pretty fabric, shall we?
I have received the fabric for the next Modern Quilt Guild challenge, so here is a pretty shot together with Kona coal, iron, and ash, my potential background fabrics.
Earlier this month I placed an order at Mad About Patchwork (OMG have you seen the rainbow stash bundle!) which included these lovely prints. From left, Stitch Circles in Olive, Michael Miller (I am loving the shades that these blenders come in, although, in my opinion, this company uses a slightly coarser weave than some of the quilting cottons out there.) Enchant Birds in Aqua, and Anna Maria Horner Mind’s Eye in Tambourine (because
you I can never have too much AMH).
And after perusing the hundreds of bolts at the Len’s Mill booth at the Creativ Festival show, these low volume text prints followed me home. I mostly prefer my low volumes to be in neutral (beige or grey) tones, I’m not as comfortable using LV which read as a colour.
Finally, some super soft sock yarn. I recently finished up a knitted hat, which I worked on mostly while watching swimming lessons, plus some car rides, and I really would like to make some socks for myself to use this “down time” constructively. This one comes with a pattern so I can start right away. I do have a ravelry account, and I have downloaded a few patterns from there too, but it’s so hard to decide which one *she says plaintively*.
So hopefully, my friends, these lovelies will find some good use in projects over the next two or three months.
