yea! i finished the cutting of my blocks for the windmill quilt last nite. it really didnt take long, as i had the template, they really do make quick work of cutting. i used all 40's prints in red, pink, peach, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue and purple. i am using a off white/cream with the prints. i want to do a border on this as i dont think it will be big enough with just the windmill blocks, but am unsure what i will use. i bought up the last of the off white we had at the shop and i dont think we will be getting in anymore of it as it was a co-ordinate for the rise and shine line. i will see once i get the rest of the top done. perhaps you will help me?? you are always so good at these things. much better than me.
i only have friday-sunday to get the blocks made up as i will be getting a binding job on sunday and it is a big one, 99x100+, and the person wants it by thursday. i hope i dont have anything going on the days i dont work!!! my luck it will be very hot and sticky out and i will be spending my time tucked under a huge quilt, uck.
i did up one block before cutting up all the cream blocks, because i wanted to make sure i didnt cut them wrong. it would be my kind of luck to cut them all, wrongly! i had cut a couple of the prints half wrong, so had to recut, which wasnt a big deal because i didnt need too much of the fabrics. but i didnt have that much extra of the off white. it turned out great, altho i need to work on stitching the pieces together, as you have to get them just right.
the pattern in new to indygo junction and our shop. when i came in i squealed and just had to buy it. i need to make a quick stop at joanns to get a lil plastic zipper so i can make one of these bad boys. what do you think of making one taller and putting my blackberry in it??? too cute, eh? then i can hang it from the outside of my purse!!
smooches for now!
