Spring is in the air, NOT here. We got a dump of the white stuff today. You know up to your knees stay inside, shovel every few hours or lose track of the the drive way.
So I got to stay in and sew all day.
I got a few strips and squares sewn in to green patchwork. My plan it to make at least a bag, maybe a book cover. I have not really thought about what size I need for sure.
Also I got a ton of sorting and trimming down some lime green scraps. 2" sq, 2.5", sq 3" sq, then strips that are 1 1/2", 2", 2.5", and 3" strips. There is also the larger chunks and a pile of the dark green that was in the wrong box. I will be more ready to make my sampler blocks this week and the few others blocks.
I finished up some of the purple still this week. I had lots of triangles left, so I made pinwheels. I also make a patchwork of purple for a book cover.
I have been thinking of doing a string quilt for sometime. Well I got a good start on some blocks. I prepared my papers 8" sq phone book pages. I still have 6 or 7 phone books hidden away for paper. I am using then a 1" strip of white kona down the middle. Each side of the the blocks will have a different colour. So far I have 12 purple halves done. I think I will get out graph paper and colour in a plan. Then I will know how many blocks and what colours to do.
I got this patchwork quilted later today. Just before supper.
Close up of some quilting.
I have a quilt going to the National Juried Show! I got happy mail this week. I have keep this little quilt off the blog and I will show you after the show opens near the end of May. I might know a judge or 2 and I do not want them to know what quilt is mine. So it is still off the internet.
No, you have not seen it.
I am going to make you wait.
