I spent time last week cutting a couple of projects so I could do some power sewing. Well, it's time to cut again.
What is this obsession I have with quilting???? I can't seem to stop. Sigh
I've completed 'the guts' of my second project and need to make some border decisions. When I was preparing to do the cutting for this project I needed the tools in the next picture. A Easy Windmill Template by Omnigrid and Come Quilt With Me and my Olfa Rotating Mat (if you don't have one of these, use your 40% Joann's coupon and grab one). I don't use it often but it sure is handy when I need it.
Stephanie calls these windmills, Whirligigs and I've watched her make several adorable Whirligig quilts. I searched for the required template and finally found one after visiting three Joann's Stores.
Here's my Whirligig quilt top using Oh Cherry Oh by Moda and Kona White. I seem to be having issues and challenges with background fabrics this year because I've used the last of my Kona White and now I need more for the inner borders. Huge Sigh! LOL Guess it's time to buy another bolt!
Last week my Sweetie was suffering with a bad cold and my grandson, Seth was suffering with tonsillitis. I offered to take it so they would feel better but I was only being polite .....guess what.....I'm suffering with a terrible head cold this week and feeling a bit puny. In a day or two when I feel better I'll make a dash to the quilt store to grab border fabrics for my recent completions (Dutch Treat and Whirligigs).
I'm ready to start searching for new projects but first I'll have to do some Celebrity Stunt Sewing for a local Quilt Diva. ;-)
I'm off to curl up with my book and hopefully take a little nap.
I hope you've enjoyed your visit - come again real soon!
