How would you like to win some EQ products, some new fabric or even EQ7 itself if you don’t have it?
There is one week left in the challenge. Go here for the details and start designing!
This is my design entry:
It was hard for me to design with these fabrics, as they are all rather large prints. The rules allow one solid to be added to the fabrics used to color the block. The block itself isn’t too interesting, but when set together with more blocks and some partial blocks around, it’s beautiful.
I have one like the second layout almost done. I need to finish 3 partial blocks, add some background around the edges. The block above is actually 4 blocks together. One block by itself isn’t very interesting. I combined 4 to make the block to submit for the challenge. I’m not sure of the final shape, if it’ll round or an octagon, or???
Yesterday I went in and quilted the king size quilt. I hadn’t quilted since December, so I had to think a bit. I started with a tension problem, and ripping, and ripping, and ripping. Once that was straightened out, it went fine. I also quilted the block on the pillow shams, I’ll finish them with stitch-in-the-ditch.
It’s snowing today today. It started some time during the night. Right now the flakes are small. Then it’s supposed to get really cold again for a few days, before warming to the 30’s over the weekend. At least, that’s the forecast.
I went out to dump the ashes from the wood stove, and I’d say we have at least 6” of snow, with more coming down. I shoveled a little, but more will have to be moved later on.
Now on to the binding.
