I can't believe that it has been almost a month since I last posted. What have I been up to? A little bit of sewing, I finished the block for my virtual quilt group "a Dozen Quilters." I joined the "Modify Tradition Swap" and finished my mini top, now just have to quilt it. I've been working on coming up with an idea for a memory quilt for my Guild, I will present it on Wednesday, wish me luck.
Work is winding down for the year and with it comes a flurry of activities. My colleague and I applied for a grant for some robotics, and just found out we were awarded it. It's very exciting, however I'm beginning to realize that it will probably be a lot of work over the summer...hmm... Is that a good thing?
I found a mini quilt at a local flea market for $7.00 it's cute but needs a good washing, and a little TLC.
Here are some pictures of my May block and the mini quilt. I can't show you the Modify Tradition mini yet because it's a secret. But I can show you the beautiful Modify Tradition mini I got in the mail from Shelley of Elsie's Girl. It's beautiful, I love it, everything; the design, the quilting, the color ! Shelley used Riley Blake fabrics a current favorite of mine. Without further ado, here are the pictures .
I'm participating in a swap hosted by Modify Tradition. I'm suppose to take about my likes and dislikes, I like color: browns, orange, greens, reds, blues, pretty much all color. My least favorite is purple. I like all aspects of quilting and like most of what has been posted on on Modify Tradition. I like a traditional blocks in fresh color ways, so whatever you make for me, I'm sure I'll love it. Current color ways I get inspiration from are Riley Blake, Joel Dewberry, Amy Schimler something along these lines. I hope to have fun with this swap and want the same for you so don't stress about what to do enjoy the creative process.
