More pinwheels...(Fabric Verna by Kate Spain...pattern "Jelly & Jam" by Joanna Figueroa).
Borders on my Hope Valley quilt...(Fabric by Denyse Schmidt, pattern "Off Kilter" by Heather Mulder Peterson).
Had to share a close-up of the corner fabric...I'd originally intended this fabric for the four corners but was an inch short and almost used the side border floral instead....SOOO glad I waited for more of my initial choice...just that little bit of additional contrast made a wonderful difference...this is one of those quilts that I just love...hopefully after it's quilted and washed I can get some great pictures.
I did get a lot of sewing in this week...my February Schnibbles is complete...can't wait to share it...and I also nearly finished another quilt I can't yet share. I pieced two quilt backs yesterday--I procrastinate on quilt backs for some reason--does anyone else do this? Any suggestions? One of my goals for 2010 is to piece my quilt backs immediately after finishing the tops. Oh, and another goal is patience...if I could just learn to patiently wait for the "future collections" on the United Notions page I think life would be much easier. I'm pretty confident about accomplishing the quilt back goal...the patience...not so much! Have a great day!
