My original plan was to start a Yellow Brick Road quilt in kitty cat fabrics for my baby cousin Angie who will turn 2 this week. Plan A was thwarted when I couldn't find my quilt pattern (I organized the patterns last week) and discovered that I had seven kitty cat fabrics instead of the 12 that the missing pattern called for. Oh well, I will use a different pattern. I've already mailed Angie her birthday gift, so her quilt can wait for the holidays.
Plan B became work on some pillowcases. Fast and easy to make, very little thinking required. I finished four cupcake pillowcases that just needed that last seam sewn. I also made a graduation theme pillowcase for Joannie's daughter Jill, who just graduated from college and a fishing theme pillowcase for my neighbor Leo, an avid fisherman, who gave me a bunch of sewing treasures recently. Romeo, LarryPug, and I went and gave the pillowcase to Leo and he was very surprised. I also dropped off two of the cupcake print pillowcases for the little girls that live down the street from us. They surprised us with spider cupcakes for Halloween last year.
I also put together two of the panels for my Scrap Wave Quilt. I have three finished. I'm going to make at least seven panels. I may go jumbo and make eight. If I do, the top will finish to 88"x96" without borders.
|Loving the colors! This was a Bali Pop called "Tropical Punch." Actually, I used four identical jelly rolls, plus four additional strips of batik, so there are 44 fabrics in each panel. Three panels are shown here.|
|Whoooo is this fabric for?|
We had beautiful weather this weekend. Mike and I went to a small local jazz festival with some friends on Saturday.
|I bought myself a cool ring with our names on it.|
|LarryPug actually enjoys his annual visit. He is even willing to pose on the exam table. Not so, Romeo, who I have to hold in a death grip the entire time so he won't jump off the table.|
Hope you had a good weekend.
Linking up on Friday to Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Richard and Tanya Quilts and Crazy Mom Quilts. Thanks so much for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
