I sure didn't mean for a whole week to go by without posting. I meant to post yesterday as a matter of fact and even had a couple picture to share but somehow it didn't happen, LOL. Thunderstorms and having to power down the computer may have had something to do it with it.
I can't show you the other stuff so this will have to do! Pattern Source: Quilting Assistant Mock Trip Around the World. I would do another of these in a heart beat as the blocks can be arranged just about any way but I like this medallion style one probably the best. The website gives you a couple of other ideas but I came up with a few others. See my past post HERE for that.
Missouri Star Quilt Company has one that she finished up the interior seams on the serger found HERE. Robin Gallagher of Robin Quilts, Etc. also has a video for the pillow case but uses a french seam on the remaining two sides HERE. I recently said that I would like to have a basic serger and this would have been a good chance to use one. I did the french seams BUT see how much off I am where this band meets? Actually I think it is my fault for not re-cutting the strip in the kit. The quilt shop tears their fabric. I pressed it is half as instructed but there are spots where it is about an 1/8 of an inch off in the width. I know because 1) I can see it is NOT even and 2) I measured it after the fact.
It is sort of cute though, isn't it? Ballerina mice. Who knew? If they are still wanting these at guild I may donate it. If not, maybe we can do a few more and send them with our quilts when we donate them down the line. OR I might just use it myself, LOL. Probably not.
Other than that I did a bit of research for a hexagon idea I have for the late August hop. I need to know how big it might finish so I have cut something out to try my theory. This is a case of combining a few things from a few sources to get the result I THINK I want. It may not work but then again, it just might, LOL.
Here we go again with the thunder bumpers and it is pouring down rain! Same thing happened yesterday and we had two inches fall in a very short time. Skyler has seen enough and is heading for his hiding spot under my bed! Thankfully, I had run the grocery errands before this came blowing in. I had planned on quilting today but that may need to wait till things calm down a bit in the weather department. I'll swap out machines anyway. Plus there is a whole boatload of binding to press as well.
Hope you are having a good weekend in whatever you have chosen to do----
