The Past 30 days – July

9 Aug

It is amazing what can happen in 30 days!  I started a new job at my work, and it is very challenging…and time consuming.

I have decided to put away my more difficult projects.  I don’t know what made me think I could design quilts 2 months into starting to quilt.  It brought much frustration, and very little progress.  My Dresden is a no-go.  The brown backing is a “radiant” design, like this;

Why I couldn’t just use 4 quarter panels, is beyond me…Because of my bright idea, the quilt does not lie flat, and because of this, I don’t know how I’m going to quilt it.

I love the idea, and I will eventually come up with a way to salvage this.  But I need to put it down for a while and come back to it.

My Bargello is ready to go to the quilters!  I got this great backing fabric from www.hawthornethreads.com;

and my Four-Patch is also ready for quilters!  This is an old pic, but I’ll post a new one when I get it back.

I only did 2 quilt-block-a-day blocks this month 😦 I’m still on February!!

This month I’m taking the Mango Tango class.  I’m going to stick with classes, and patterns for the next few months, rather than “designing” :).  And I hope to try to get into the March quilt-block-a-day…seeing as it’s August!

    I love your brown quilt. It’s amazing. (And I really do read your posts as they go up…I just get behind on commenting. I have a convoluted system, but it works for me.)
