Workin Wednesdays

I still haven’t touched that zigzag quilt, but I’m not bothered by it just yet. I’ve started drawing some simple geometric designs for a gift. It started with me looking at a bunch of modern, solid fabric quilts & then I sat up in bed and thought of lettering. Then I decided on college football blankets that you can roll up for travel & use to keep toasty on the bleachers. Yeah, my mind seems to make odd connections like this all the time… Anyways, I sketched & erased & colored in my notebook until my hand hurt. Then I went to the computer for easier coloring. Oh, and I’m from Oklahoma, so I did OU & OSU. I went to Baylor, but let’s just say they aren’t know for the football… & living in Austin, I also did UT, but I don’t have any pics on my phone for some reason. Alright, back to real life…

Amusement Mondays

Well, I spent this weekend finishing one of those quilt tops that *seemed* like a great idea when I started & then swiftly went downhill. I got a Bari J fat quarter bundle for half price & decided to make a zig zag quilt. I didn’t have enough yardage to do her Meadow Fresh pattern, so I improvised with what I had. Then I got to the outer border and sewed an entire side before noticing my bobbin was empty. Awesome. Anyway, I decided I was done looking at it for now & put it on chair where it immediately became my cat’s new favorite bed. Sigh. But on a positive note, I imagined some new quilt patterns just before bedtime & sketched them out before I forgot. I’m going to spend some free time today figuring out how to color them & hopefully y’all will see them soon! Now back to real life…
