I seem to have difficulty finding time to blog these days. Working fewer hours in a given week than I used to, I am spending more time sewing, baking, and -- when the weather is decent -- walking. More time reading, too.
My daughter uses me as a baby boutique; when she needs a gift, I provide her with a quilt. Apparently there's a baby boom going on in her world at present. There is a minor one going on in my own world, too. So baby quilts have been the order of the day.
The blue/green one is nothing more than 2-1/2" squares of batik strips sewn together to make 16-patch blocks and then alternating them with black-or-navy dots on white (you may have to click to enlarge and see the dots). I like it. Seems to have a "boy" feel to it.
This other one is made from the Mazed quilt pattern, using 3" squares of Kaffe Collective and some spectacular chicken wire fabric I found during Gene's last stupendous sale.
Now I'm ready to make a fox quilt and am excited to try it.
And today's mail brought the white-dot-on-black fabric that I had ordered for my sunny churn-dash bee blocks. So let the Winter Weather Alert play itself out -- I've got plenty to keep me busy!
