I SWEAR the 20 gallon crock is
not completely full of scraps!
It's lunchtime and I'm sitting here eating a pb&j with *fresh* homemade strawberry jam! What could be better?! The only thing I could come up with would have been homemade bread and since I just got a bread machine cookbook at the library so that might could be on tonight's short list!!
At the end of last week I was in the mood to sew on my machine (I know, weird!, tired of hexies??). I've had this fabric since it first hit the shelves in my LQS and I had wanted to make a tumbler quilt but just never seemed to get to it. Then I saw a Missouri Star Quilt Company youtube video on tumblers made to look like honeycombs and I knew it was the project for me...ASAP! LOL!
I plotted the project in EQ but it still came out a bit long for me. Never fear, I've decided to only put the striped border on the 2 sides with the "horizontal" stripe to trick the eye in to thinking the quilt is wider, even if it's still a bit long. I didn't have enough of a dark green for an inner border but I found this olive green (I swear it matches in person) over the weekend :^)
