Since I've finished my big project for Fall (Talkin Turkey), I was needing some small project to wind-down. So, I'm making a couple of quilts for Linus Project. They are in the Zig-Zag setting using two fabrics. Here is one of my students from my weekend class working on her first ever quilt. The blocks are 6 inch finished half square triangles using one large print and a solid reading print. She had never used a sewing machine and wanted to learn to quilt. She really hopped right in and had the top almost done in four hours. I just love teaching new quilters.
Well, I was surfing the Internet yesterday during my lunch hour and found a wonderful and "free" row quilt design by Lori Holt from Bee in My Bonnet on Blogger (beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com) that I just fell for really too quickly. I know I have a short attention span. Lori started the tutorials in August 2012. She is releasing a row every two weeks and there are four rows that have been released already. I have a few 'modern' fabrics in my stash, just need to find a few more for a nice scrappy selection. So, do I start another large project before Bonnie Hunter's mystery in November? Am I that much a sucker for punishment!
Well, yes. Why not? Lori, I'll be trying to catch up this weekend. We will see how this goes. Here is a picture of some of the fabrics I want to gather. This fabric photo is from Lori's August 25th posting and the Row 1 tutorial is in Lori's August 29th post. Thank you Lori for a wonderful quilt design. But before you hop on over to Lori's blog, be warned, you too will fall for this quilt, I'm sure.
I am a Pastor's wife of 38 years; mother of two grown and married children, quilting for over 40 years, Longarm quilter for 14 years, domestic sewing machine collector (don't ask me how many sewing machines I have!) I love woodworking (building cabinets and bookcases), I like to read mysteries and watch "chick" flicks. I love all types of music except Blue Grass, but my favorites are Contemporary Christian and oldies-Rock'n Roll.
