I have not been doing a lot of sewing over the last couple of weeks. My daughter was home for a few days and my aunt was here from Scotland for 10 days so there was lots of visiting and special family meals, but not a lot of sewing! This past weekend was the London Friendship Quilters Guild Quilt show. This week, Christine and I finally both had time to get together to sew! I worked on Abby's t-shirt quilt.
I added these neat yellow stripes (and one red stripe) beside this quote by George Bernard Shaw.
Last night, I made some "parts" including these red squiggly lines and some 60 degree triangles.
I also made some hour glass units. I did not sew any of these parts together last night...I wanted to mull over the possibilities first.
Tonight, I made some blue broken dishes blocks.
I am running out of the gray background fabric! YIKES! I made an emergency call to my friend, Pam, at Mad About Patchwork. She is going to send me the gray fabric I need tomorrow. Thanks, Pam!
When my aunt was here, I took her to The Little Red Mitten, a local knitting shop. My aunt purchased a couple of knitting patterns and enough wool to keep her busy over the winter with her projects. The lady who helped us had nifty knitting fingernails! I wonder if there is nail art like this for quilters???
