Welcome to my 'Hood and have a Good Friday!!
Brought to you by the Neighborhood Watch Cat System!
|I like the sparkle the teal flange adds|
|Not the world's best photo but I really liked the texture as I was turning off the room lights.|
|I'm not the only one taking advantage of the table!|
|The colored squares were purchased at a quilt show. The vendor sold hand dyes and had a cute little box of 6 gradients of each of her colors. They were 2" squares and perfect for 3/4" hexies. Unfortunately, the burnt orange set to the left is short one piece - I am hoping to find a suitable replacement so I can include that rosette too.|
|Am I crazy enough to cut fabric for the diamonds before my trip?|
|You are probably questioning the deviled egg fabric - I guess it's my signature dish to some degree. I have several store bought books and many more recipes saved on Pinterest or in a notebook. I bet I have almost 200 recipes! It was a sure thing to buy the fabric - now I just need a pattern. I'll probably incorporate the colors more than the egg shape but I know something will come to me!|
|Orange star was from a class I took in Houston. The pieced fabric was pressed onto freezer paper.|
The rosette is supposed to have a snowman face in the center.
The diamond was an extra from "Obsession" - someday it will be the label on the back.
|Photo taken in the dark so you can see it glow. |
I often forget it glows until the lights are turned off.
|Uh, Zorro, the peeps can't see Momma's dolly quilt.|
|Nothing exciting in this box - just cream hexies...|
|Hard to tell from the photo but this is probably arm's width wide.|
I just needs a new purpose so I can continue working on it.
|I think this selection started with the 2 feathery FQs at the top right.|
I LIKE the fabrics, I just can't make them fit in to the 3 shapes of this pattern.
|This is called Ferris Wheel - it's just 1.5" hexies, squares and equilateral triangles. |
I've seen lots of fabric placement ideas online but none of them really grab me.
Some day, I'll find the 'one' and get this project started.
|This is the left over fabric and papers after basting all the diamonds. |
I would really like to put them back in the stash to clear a box but I'm afraid
if there are extra papers that maybe I can't count...
|Here you can see the box that has been in the curio,|
the basket of basted diamonds that sits on my cutting table
(don't ask about the panic when those diamonds were not where I thought they were)
and the pieces that are already stitched together.
This pattern needs to have some thought put into placement so the fabric usage is balanced.
At some point I decided it had to be a stay at home project for that reason but
I'm finding that I don't work on it at home so I'll have to come up with another plan.
|Whooahhhh - moved the basted diamonds into an empty box, instead of the basket = more |
counter top space. But now if I empty the bigger ferris wheel box I can combine these into the
one box, making room for 2 projects.
