I am actually getting some playing done--I got stuck on a ribbon border for the Star Bom so will be taking it with me tomorrow to get some on hands help----I was about to undertake something else but was talked out of that! I did manage to begin and complete this quilt as a shop sample....and in the 4 weeks since I posted last, have begun working on my hexagons. My intention is to make a quilt 22 - 4" by 22 -4" pinks, browns, and whites. It is English Paper Pieced and it is fun and addictive! I dont quite remember where I got the idea and pink isnt a color I care for but this is looking great already..A friend called it my Neopolitan quilt! Yesterday I bought a bolt of chocolate brown batik for the half hexagons that will be on the outside and for the border. That is a all, oh--unless I make it bigger, I need to make 484 of these. This is a Summer and take it with me project! I cut binding for another wall hanging today and will stitch that when the sun is out..it is a black background and going on black border...not nice at night!
ok--gonna watch tv for now!---toodles
