I had big plans for my week "off" (do Moms ever really get a week truly 'off?')
Steiger and I did spend lots of time together... but in the sewing department, this is all that I accomplished:
Kelly's Good Folks Ode to the HST
I knew I wanted to approach my HSTs by value (like this block), but a fellow busy bee beat me to that design. So I improvised a bit, and decided that the little touch of kona ash in the middle helped accentuate the design motif better. And it gives the block a focal point too... I was quite happy with it, as was miss Kelly. :)
And Amy's peachy-plummy mermaids.
Amy wanted HSTs or flying geese for her blocks, and I actually went to the block library on EQ7 to come up with a design idea. I did a few of them up on the computer, and Amy picked the mermaid background. I was a tiny bit shy of having enough, but I think it still looks good... I hope she thinks so too! I love the double frames; this quilt is going to be so pretty.
This weekend, I'm really hoping to get some time (and energy) to work on my niece Libby's quilt...
She was born February 23, at 3:33 pm... 6 lbs, 12 oz., 19 inches, and all kinds of preciousness.
I'm only sad I am still two states away.
