Pat's Knitting and Quilting
June 20, 2008
Hello again - it's been awhile :-)
1st I finished my red scrap quilt....
Pattern: "Country Cousin" by Judy Martin, my favorite quilt designer, from her OOP book Scrap Quilts.
Here are a few more pictures -click to enlarge.
I almost always piece the back of big quilts since I rarely buy yardage of fabric - here is a view of a section of the back of this quilt - I think I might actually need to go buy some more red fabric!
As soon as I finished that, I had 3-4 more quilts I wanted to make - I seem to be on a roll!
Next...a fun quilt that takes no time at all. I picked 30 different stash batiks and cut a 10" square of each one. Then you just stack 3 at a time and cut as directed -each stack makes 3 blocks. It is a perfect little lap quilt! I think I'll make a few more...
Pattern: "Jungle Fever" (with my fabric choices, I would call it Woodland Serenity) by Karen Montgomery.
The color on the upper part of the compost pile view is closest to reality.
and a new project in the making - here is one block
I don't think I'll ever knit at the pace I was knitting prior to my shoulder fiasco, but I just picked out some beautiful STR "Fire on the Mountain" (I won this skein from Lori over a year ago) and started knitting a plain old pair of stockinette socks...
We leave for Fairbanks, AK in 5 days(to spend some time with my oldest son, Matt)and I need something to knit on the plane! Looks like I'll finish these, so I better get another project together...
