Yep, snowed in again. My poor Chicago-land friends are really taking a beating today. I made the most of it by sewing.
Thanks MB for sending me this fabulous fabric I just love it.
I received it yesterday and it has all my favorite "down home, Chicago" themes on it. I used it on the back of my Midnight Stars, Quilt Along from Lori's Blog.
The colors were just right for it.
I loved Lori's idea of doing hanging diamonds, but I was engrossed in Iron Chef and turned it wrong and ended up with dropped diamonds. Doh! I really wanted to try it her way, as I usually do it this way - next time!
I didn't mark it and just let the lines fall where they may. I agree with Lori, it gives it an old fashion - devil may care look :)
Doesn't that black fabric look like a bacterial virus? I used this funny little black cat, like my Luna, and the computer for the label.
Happy Birthday to my friend Sheila! She received this quilt for her special day. I quilted it with cross hatches - my favorite no mark method.
I've also made more rag balls - I just can't stop. After I trim off batting, it must be rolled and covered with homespun -
Lastly, my daughter received an acceptance letter from her 1st choice college today, Miami of Ohio. She was home to receive it and be the first to know - it was a thrill and I was grateful for the chilled champagne on hand! Congratulations Hanna!
