This is where my daughter's wedding quilt stalled. I was at the Common Threads Quilt group Monday night and it is time to be thinking about the quilt show. My DD has had her bedroom renovated and the quilt needs finishing. I am thinking the focus for April needs to be quilts.
The design was a Bird of Paradise wall hanging which I just kept adding to.
Of course I not only changed the finished size, I changed the colours also.
Even with a coloured diagram it has been challenging to keep track of everything. It doesn't help that some of the fabrics are directional.
If this looks blurry it is because it is also the way it looks to me as I lay things out piece by piece so I can keep track of what needs to happen next.
This year is the town's centennial and our quilt group, headed up by Melissa, has set a challenge of 100 twelve inch quiltlets depicting the town's history. I made a block for a friend whose husband ran a sheet metal business. He was always passing out company pens so an old jacket yielded the logo and the pocket. Quilters who are interested in the happenings in our part of Manitoba or even for the whole province, can checkout this link for local happenings.
But the same day I got my supplies from Superior Threads so it looks like it is going to be sewing for sure this month. Now if I could just find where the challenge fabrics from the last quilt show are hiding I could be at least be thinking of doing it after the bird of paradise is well feathered and ready to fly!
I often forget to say that on wow Wednesdays, I link up with Canadian gals who share their work on
