Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Productivity!


I just finished up the center portion of 9-Patch Criss Cross. I like how it turned out; I have to admit that I was a bit fussy about putting this one together. Normally I am not anal about these things, but this quilt has no seams turned under or going the wrong way. If a point got lost in the seam allowance, I picked it out and did it over. For some reason I just wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. *grin* I did, and it looks pretty darn good both on the front and the back!!


Now I must think about borders. The book calls for a 2.5-inch dark brown border and a 7.5-inch red border (finishes at 2 and 7 inches, respectively). This works for me, so I just need to haul out the fabric bins and do some stash diving. I think I will be able to come up with two fabrics that will suit me.

Off to quilt and watch Olympics!!

Happy Quilting, Friends!

Very nice! Wasn't it fun to see the USA women's gymnastics team get a gold medal?
