Its a Scrappy Trip Around the World (Quiltville.com) but I'm using a planned color repeat I saw on The Polka Dot Chicken blog. Thank you Carol! I'm planning on making mine 6X8--one more row at the top and two at the bottom. The color repeat is--
red (and pink)
blue (and purples)
My blocks are a bit too dark--I'm adding more lights to the last 18 blocks. I think they'll balance out. See everyone's Design Walls at Patchwork Times.
While finding fabrics for this project, I refolded and sorted 5 fabric cubes. I can really tell the difference in my stash--what were stuffed cubes now have plenty of breathing room.
- Quilt Henrietta's 30's top
- Borders on DeeDee's Star
- 2 crib sheets
- binding on one quilt
- 2 yoyo centers
- trace 2 cherry tree blocks
I'm waiting for Ken to finish taxes--right now he's spread out on the big table that I use for some of my sewing. Another few days and that will be done.
More pictures from Sertoma Butterfly House--which is not all butterflies! Fish--all with steps along the tanks so kids could be eye to eye with the fish.
|Sometimes I pose|
|Sometimes I'm shy|
|I may bring a friend|
|Or match the background|
|I might be famous!!|
The fish were very popular with the kids. I sat and laughed and watched everyone "find Nemo". In all these pictures the plants/animals in the background ARE ALIVE!! The silvery white background behind Nemo waved and wiggled. I was fascinated! I didn't get pictures of them--but there were small manta rays in a large tank--there were steps all around it and kids were encouraged to reach in and touch them. (towels were furnished) There were also small sharks in another section--yes--the kids could touch them too. They were a non-biting shark and only about a foot long.
My week is full, I'm not sure how much sewing I'll get done.
Have you started a new project?
