It won't stop talking to me!
This quilt has pushed it's way to the top of my list even though I really should be working on others.
I'm giving in because it makes me grin every time I look at it.
So yesterday I got up and started working more on it.
I found enough large pieces of 9 fabrics to make another 9 patch to cut into setting triangles. I used the same fabric in the middle of this one as the other two. It adds a little control to this pretty vibrant quilt.
I got the block cut and half of the center sewn together before I headed out for the day.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to be sewing the rest together once I'm done writing this ;)
My husband and I went to Sudbury to visit and pick up my Traffic Jam quilt! My friend Shirley, who I met online through Pat Sloan's Quilt Mashup Group, quilted it for me.
I am so happy with the whole experience. It is truly amazing how much my quilting life has gained from the internet.
Which led to my third quilty thing yesterday - my Curling Rocks Runner!
Shirley was my inspiration for this design as she loves curling. It was so fun to be able to give it to her as a way to say thanks for quilting my quilt for me.
AND there is a tutorial for the runner up this week at QuiltSocial.com so you can make one for yourself or to make as a gift!
I hope you enjoyed my quilty day - I sure did :)
