If you can’t see this one, you need to rush right down to your local opthamologist!
It’s kind of a dreary day today, so this was the best I can do for photos.
This quilt is pretty wild, but I like it. The fabric is Red, White and Bold by Sandy Gervais for Moda. The pattern is for a new book by Heather Peterson of Anka’s Treasures. The book isn’t even out yet, but Heather, kind soul that she is, slipped me the patterns. The book is called “Let the Good Times Roll”. Watch for it in just a few weeks. All of the projects in this book are made with a jelly roll and border fabrics. I’ve made two quilts from the book, and I’m ready to start another one. The name of this quilt is Cafe Au Lait. Needless to say, the fabric Heather used is much more muted. I can personally kill any pattern she produces!!!
Isn’t this fabric fun? I’m using a great big floral for the backing and a diagonal red stripe for the binding.
I’m knitting, but the repeat I added to Morning Glory doesn’t really make it look any different.
I also have a cute puppy picture today.
I swear she loves anything handmade in this house. She loves my knitting. Today I was working on my Swell quilt. It was laid out on the floor and she managed to climb under it and go to sleep. I just have the borders left on this quilt. It may be my all time favorite quilt. It just makes me smile. More soon…..
And last but not least, I’m celebrating my @^&#th birthday tomorrow. My big plan was to watch the Nascar race in our motorhome. However, my plan encountered a glitch. There’s no Nascar race. So, we’ll go to church, and then I’ll probably do what I did today. Work on a quilt. Oh, and I think there’s a new knitting project on the horizon. I want these.
And now, back to those quilt borders!
