Rust

Here are some rusts that I think I’m going to use in my latest project. They are sitting on blocks that I need to assemble for another project. It was a leader & ender quilt that I started awhile back. I love the idea of working on a quilt in the “background” of other projects. I finally have all the blocks finished and now I need to assemble the rows… Of course I want to make the leader & ender for this year so I better get busy I guess! 🙂

Making progress…

Remember when I started drafting this pattern?! Finally I’m at a point where I can start using it. Jeez! It took a lot longer than I remembered to get it all marked up so that I can start cutting it apart. Oh well, its a process right? Not a race. I’m excited to finally be picking colors! Woohoo!

Starting a new quilt.

Starting a new project. I’m drawing the design on freezer paper first, then I’ll use that as my pattern. I want to do something original to spice things up. I made a quilt like this oh about 16 years ago, before the kids arrived. I guess I took some time off to make a few beads, but now that I’m decked out with a machine that works so nicely I feel like I’m ready for something wild! Fingers crossed…
