WOW – September 26th 2012

I have spent the last two days making about 280 3” half square triangles.
Last Friday my 22 year old son ended up in the ER.  It turned out that he had scarlet fever.  So being the mom that I am I decided to completely disinfect his room considering that he is normally cleaning his own room I knew it deserved a little of my attention.  So in the process of washing his bedding the nine year old bed spread of his total came apart in the wash.
Ian is the only one of my children that I have not made a bed quilt for.  So the challenge is on.  He wanted something made entirely from flannel with a high loft.  I have modified a pattern that I have always liked from Edyta Sitar’s book Friendship Triangles.  So I will be working like a maniac to get this done so he has something on his bed before it gets cold.
Hopefully next week for WOW I can post a finished quilt photo.

My Fernhill progress.

I’m all caught up with my Fernhill BOM.  This will be so great when it’s done.  I had a little mishap with putting the third border on I originally put the red strip of fabric on the wrong side I had to unsewn my entire applique and fix it. Oh well it’s right now.  I’m looking forward to the next installment.

Lots to share!!!

I have lots to share with everyone.  I have not posted to by blog again for way to long.  This does not mean that I have not been doing lots of sewing, baking and other fun stuff.  My job has been extra demanding as well so my blog has been the area to be neglected.  
This weekend my husband and I went to see Jason Mraz at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington.  It was a very fun show.  His band is really talented and a really good time was had by all! I did some hand sewing in the car on the way over and back it’s really hard to keep your stitching even on a bumpy road.
I want to start by showing you my last three blocks to my promises and boarders quilt.  They are wonderful designs and I have enjoyed stitching them.  One more month and I will be finished. 

I finished the quilt I started at the Colleen Wise workshop that I attended earlier in the year.  I really enjoyed making this quilt.  It was something that I might not have done on my own and I learned a lot from Colleen.

Lastly I will share with you a little block that I made for a gift to a member of one of my guilds. We were given the background fabric and the pattern.  This is my interpretations.  Hope she likes it. 

I have so much more to show you, but this is all for now.
