I began quilting KP's quilt. I'm hoping to make the curves within the squares design that has the cathedral windows look. Of course, my curves curve all over the place but that's what makes it my quilting.
The only batting I had at home the day I made the sandwich was the extra loft type. I hesitated using it but now I really like the results. So, it would be nice if I can get this done by early July, but whenever I make a plan something happens so no plan, just doing.
I won this great book from Quiltmaker.
It's Farm Fresh Quilts by Kim Gaddy.
I love, love the designs in this book. You may see a bee skep or chicken runner soon.
And because I appreciate her approach to quilting, I ordered Mary Ellen Hopkins' book, The It's Okay To Sit On My Quilt Book.
It's out of print, so I ordered a used book through Amazon. My book is like new. Love it.
I like my Sizzix die cutter very much, and get emails from them when they have sales and such. I was able to buy all of these dies for under $40.00, including shipping, which I think is pretty good shopping.
If you like die cutters, visit SewCalGal http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/ . There is an eBosser blog hop going on with how-to's and giveaways. Apparently, the eBosser is compatible with dies from multiple manufacturers. Sounds nice.
The sun is out and so are the lawn mowers.
God Bless You.
