Here is my valentine from Terry! And the big bag of Mints!!! Love the card! I'm still giggling about it!
Finished this one! Lots of hand quilting on it! Just fun one. Took a long time to quilt it! "Spare Logs" is for sale!
Started in on this Hawaiian design. Something about that bright green was bugging me. Looked great in a stack, but once its cut out, not so much. So? Do I remove that green and cut another? Nope!
Cut out a second green and putting it over the first green so that the lighter green will show around the edges once I'm done. More applique, but it'll be worth it!
See?! I'm basting it now... I wanted to have one to take around to places to work on... but this one is too big for that. It's about 66" square. I wanted something about 42" square. So I did go to Amazon and ordered some books. Got 4 of the 5 so far... now the one with the interesting patterns didn't come with actual patterns... I will be drafting things. Not the most fun, but I'll be able to get it to the size I want.
So what do you do when you can't find the pattern? Make up your own! It's not that hard. And if it get's goofed up in anyway, well it's your own design! It was a creative decision! You don't have to make things exactly like everyone else does! It's more fun to have something orginal and have people wonder how you did it... trial and error, I mean trial and create! Just remember, it's the process that is fun, not just the outcome.
