We’ll I have just one backing to add to this week’s sewing — the backing for the 30’s bowtie caring quilt posted last weekend when I was quilting on it. I still need to get to the binding but haven’t gotten around to that yet.
So a total of 4.5 used this week for a grand total of 57.25 yards used so far this year.
I’ve been playing a bit in EQ on a super simple quilt design – Lifesavers.
I’m not particularly fond of the borders on this one but I do like the block and it will make some simple, bright charity quilts.
I’m contemplating using this block for a block swap using batiks – it would be oh so pretty.
But enough playing in EQ for today – I’v got some work to get done and I’ve puttered between knitting and EQ all morning.
What’s on the design wall today — well several things in progress.
Baxter Bear is still up there – I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to add any more to that one or call him finished and ready to quilt so I’ll just keep staring at him a while longer. There’ s snowglobe blocks for a block swap – they’ll be hanging around a while too since I”m got more to make and they’re not due for a few months. That one lone block above the snowglobes is an acorn with oak leaves – it’s a block for a seasonal potholder swap that I need to quilt soon. And below Baxter is the new quilt I started this past weekend – or at least a small portion of it. The whole design (this is just a quarter of the very center) reminds me of crossstitch, hardanger work, tapestry — stitchery stuff – with the x’s and woven looking areas. It still needs a name tho so take a look HERE for the whole layout and tell me what you think would be a good name for it. 🙂
