This weekend I got the name of a friend that I have for my second secret santa I'm doing. She loves 30's prints and heaven knows I have enough left over from my Cathedral Windows. I was looking for something totally different and found my templates I used for my Grandmother's Flower Garden and decided to make a nice table runner for her. I have a bunch of 2 1/2" squares all cut and ready to frame 8" blocks with these appliqued in them...so how long do you think it should be??? 50"???
I got the patterns I ordered from Nanette in the mail today with a bonus pattern of tumblers and some very cute fabric...You ladies need to make some of delightful patterns...very easy and I love they're small enough that I hand quilt them.
Today I made this after my patterns came in the mail :)
This is the block I was playing with last week :) I"m keeping the yellow parts to make an impact on the design so my star POP!. Of course talking to Leah, she used hsts there instead of the arrow head thingy I make. Which Leah THANKS! It made more sense for the person I was helping that way and yes the wonder cut will work great for this block 3 swipes of a fq gives you more than enough for 3 blocks worth ;)
When you put four blocks together- you really can see the Hunter's Star pattern :)
Hubby's home for vacation this week with the big family party on Sunday. The Honey Do list is pretty long but he's taking 2 or 3 small items per day. This morning I finally finished quilting my black and white quilt and took it off the frame. Was getting ready to load the mystery I just did and the backing was too small by 6". I would have been so pissed if I started quilting it and that happened AGAIN!!! SO I put it away to cut small orange squares - then I took a nap because benadryl makes me so tired and that itchy rash I get is back on 5 different fingers and this time my wrist -grrrrr. Hubby called and got me an appointment for the reg dr this week. I'm so tired of this.
