I woke up Friday Morning to find 2 squishes on the table upstairs both from 2 seperate swaps
This was the 1812 swap the blocks were fabulous! This was done on the Quilt with Us Swap group hosted by Connecting Threads so 200am on Sat I was up picking fabric for the layout I decided to use. you can see the gold above and then the blue below
I pieced and put the blocks up on the board I wanted it bigger and had 15 blocks how was I going to lay it out....hmmmmm
This was my end decision. My neighbour was raking leaves in the morning so I commissioned him to hold up the quilt...as you can see we had a lovely day
I also have lots of the boarder fabrics left so I made my first ever pillows! this is the place where they will all live happily, after I quilt the top. There is a youtube tutorial to make them just google hotdog, or sausage pillowcase...many many tutorials acutally.
I was also got my leaves back all 64 in repro CW fabrics and they are aweseome too. All 64 of them.This was done through Kathleen Tracey`s Yahoo group Small Talk. This is a very active group and they are currently making a mini a month from Kathleen`s books
Not to worry though I have plans for these babies too I don`t think they will be sitting around long either
Thought I would post some close ups. Doesn`t it look like fall!!
Well I gotta get outta here and get to work you all have sweet dreams...
