What a Square

And today we have, yes, another Square quilt! This is another one that I'm making by request for someone else. Its actually one of three that I'm making for her.

Little Quilts

I started another little quilt early this afternoon and of course, wound up getting obsessed with finishing it today! What's wrong with me? Just finished the top a bit ago.

Just another in the same series I've been doing for a few months. This is for someone else though, not for me. Its cute, I think.

I'm going to go make myself a pumpkin latte and then I've got to sit my butt down and get busy on my real job.

Lovely things

While I'm thinking about it, if you haven't seen Heather Bailey's blog, you need to check it out. Every picture posted is a treat. She's got a sneak peak of her new fabric line at Free Spirit posted today as well. Go.

*I bet she's got a better camera than me!

I hate my camera

I finished the blue and chocolate quilt for myself a week or so ago and I just now managed to get the thing washed up (I live in apartment and use the laundry when scheduled - I'm not just lazy!).

I tried taking pictures and they're pitiful. They're dark and I can't get the colors to show up right for the life of me. This apartment is perpetually dark, even with one side being completely window. That and my camera sucks. I'm lusting after this one.

Anyway, here are the pics.

Should be a sound effect for this one

I finished the blocks for the zebra stripe quilt top. I'm resisting the urge to make it bigger, since who needs a bazillion full size quilts anyway? This one can be throw size. I'm playing with the arrangement of the blocks, but I think this looks okay. I'll have to leave it on the living room floor for a few days to eyeball it anyway, cuz that's what I do! I have some extra fabric, so I will probably have to piece up the back a bit and make the rest into pillows or something.

Flowers and Quilts

I started another quilt top last night. I think I have a sickness. I have no purpose for this quilt. I just wanted to make it. It is, of course, based on Denyse Schmidt. I sorta think it looks like a zebra or something. This is all I got out of the 2 yards that I had. I layered the fabric so that I could cut out 4 blocks at a time and it was ridiculously simple. There's no reason for pattern pieces. Seems to me that you could just as easily cut a rectangle and slice it up, swap pieces to mix up the fabrics and sew them into blocks. Nothing to it. I think I like it!

All mine, all mine!

I finally made one for myself. I was so bored on Labor Day - my husband had to work that evening and he was in the Labor Day parade in the morning, so I spent the whole day in the apartment with nothing to do. So. This is what I did all day. I do mean all day.

I can't wait to get it all quilted and washed up. I love how quilts get soft and wrinkly after their washed and a bit broken in.
