Mystery block unit and the game…October 27, 2012
bits and bobsNovember 2, 2012
…makes for a quick blog post! 🙂
here we are, post-Sandy the Frankenstorm – hope none of your loved ones are badly affected over on the east coast – I just can’t stop watching news… I hope they will all rebuild stronger.
During that night I did what makes me the calmest – some free-motion quilting! Hence, a few UFOs got finished and that is a good thing. There is a big push for me to finish some of my UFOs and I will tell you all about it later, but here is one of them:
I really love these easy watercolor quilts – such an instant gratification! While digging out that one, I found another one that was kind of an experiment…did not have borders, so with midnight-hour inspiration strike, I did this – what do you think? :
Something is not quite there for me…but just can’t quite see it yet! Any ideas?
OK, enough about my UFOs! Do you know what time of the year it is – International Quilt Festival in Houston!! Some day I will treat myself to a week there, in that quilt heaven, but in the meantime, here is some eye-candy for all of us – winners have been announced and you can see them HERE (don’t forget to click on each image to see it bigger!)
Houston festival is preceded by Market – a place for all retail professionals to see new products. The buzz about it all is such fun to follow on Facebook! That is where I saw this link, although I am not quite sure if this is completely new product – have you heard before about Hot Ribbon Applique? Looks like an interesting product for fusible applique lovers – check out this long video about it (only in the second part she comes to using the ribbon, but a good tutorial on fusible applique anyway). And here is the web site of The Dutch Quilter – Lennie Honcoop is the creative lady behind it all. Something for my TO TRY list for sure! 🙂
OK, my “little pocket of time is closing and I will leave you with just a little announcement that Judy guessed the right answer about the unit in my Star block and she gets the pattern! YAY!
However, I still would love to have a better name for that unit/block – so DO TELL, how would you call it:
Have a wonderful Thursday! (For me it is one of THE BEST – today is my son’s Vuk 25th birthday!! Off to the wonderful family dinner!)
