First off -- I am pleased to report that things around here are MUCH BETTER than they were a week or so ago. :) I have to thank a rain storm that came through, and my mom who sent my husband home so that he could help get everything done. The living room is painted, and Steiger's room... *phew* Scarlet's room is next; I'm gonna have to figure that one out.
I've been making progress on my "Just 3" goals for the month.
I got the paper versions of "French Kisses" ready to send to the printers. :) (One goal done)
It was really slow going (due to the reasons mentioned before), but I also got most of the top for pattern #2 done. It's a Jelly Roll or Layer cake pattern (this is the Jelly Roll version here), and just needs borders.
Steiger helped me hold it in the wind. :) (Thank you Steiger).
The featured fabric is Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille.
These little blocks are really fun to make; they come together like a puzzle... I'm still working on the baby size version with my very small collection of Denyse Schmidt prints. I'm making a rainbow and adding it to the My Precious Quilt a Long my friend Kelly is hosting. :)
I contacted a local photographer to trade her pictures for quilts to use in her business (like this kind of idea) - so I really need to get cracking on that!
Scarlet and Steiger are growing too fast!
And my PSA for the day -- my local quilt shop, The Quilt Corral, has the entire line of Echo by Lotta Jansdotter in stock. A couple friends had me pick up a fat quarter bundle for them, and my LQS said they'd take phone orders if any one else wants some. They'll cut bundles or have yardage -- I know Echo is hard to find... so if you need some, give them a call...
