This has been a fun week so far.
I have a couple of finished projects!
I knew I had the perfect floral fabric and the “right” green, but needed the solid colours to coordinate with the floral. I checked with Mad About Patchwork and of course, found exactly what I needed for my squirrel project. Aren’t those Northcott fabrics perfect?
The pattern was one I loved from Sandra at MMM Quilts called Let Your Star Shine (the link takes you to the pattern) which I had already made once. It finishes at 36 1/2” square. This is my second version of this quilt. I’m thinking that I might want to make it just a little larger so I’m determining how to add another border. Should I continue the mitered effect on opposite corners?
This was my first version of Let Your Star Shine:
My next finish should give you all a good chuckle. My DH is on the Board of Directors for the golf course where we live. He enjoys volunteering me to do little projects for the Course. Today he volunteered me to install new seat covers on a cart.
You can no longer see the duct tape repairs on the seat and I added a foam padding so it’s got some Cush now! 😉. I’m thinking that the Board might decide that I should do the other 6 carts now 🤔
As I was reading emails and blogs just before I started to write this post, I saw that I was featured on Denise’s blog, For The Love of Geese on her weekly linky party Put Your Foot Down 114. She thought my Phoenix Rising was pretty fiery! What a great compliment from another designer I admire. Did you see she entered some quilts in a virtual quilt show? You should pop over to her blog to click on the link and vote for her quilts, either the Tree of Life or the Looking in Wallhanging. You could also get the latest info on her new SAL which just started.😉
Thank you for stopping by to read my post. It’s always fun to read your comments. 😄 Carol
