I'm back after a little lapse in blogging - I have returned.
At the bottom of the blog you'll see a new feature - a game. Well, hey, Thanksgiving is right around the corner (ugh!) and I LOVE games, sometimes the sillier the better. So this game was perfect! If you have a few moments and you want to do something mindless - here ya go - it's fun! That's part of the reason I'm a genius - I figured out how to add this all on my own and I didn't have to go running to anyone (I'm looking at you Julie) to help me! WooHoo!
AND remember a couple weeks ago I ran those pictures of that really pretty kalidescope quilt that my friend had made. I was bound that I was going to figure it out??? I'm a fricken' genius - I figured it out!!!!! Without much direction and only a few hints from MaryAnn - I did it. I had a piece of fabric that fit the qualifications - it had medium to large, bright print and I had enough fabric so that the pattern was repeated at least 4 times. I barely had enough fabric - but this is my practice piece. I just wanted to see if I could do it and if so I have another piece of fabric I'd like to make a bed-sized quilt.
So here's what I came up with:
This is the fabric before I cut it. Of course it has cats in it - did I ever tell you that I LOVE cats?
These are two of the blocks. I am soooooo excited. I think they are very cool. I have 16-5" squares. I sewed the squares together yesterday. Today I am going to cut some of the coordinating fabrics and see what I can make from that - I think I will only have enough for a little lap quilt - but that's OK. This was only an experiment anyway. I just wanted to see if I can do it.YAYAYAYAYAYA!! This quilting technique is sooooooo addictive I want to do more and more. Wednesday is Veteran's Day and a holiday for us government types, so MaryAnn and I are going to do our mystery quilts. I will take lot of pictures - I can't wait to share our creations with you.
