Oh thank goodness, the sun found its way out today! Husband was able to get out the lawn mowers and transformed our piece of heaven into a magnificent park. It looks beautiful! We went for a little walkabout and I was able to ooh and ahh a lot because the yard just looks so green and luscious.
I cannot wait to start on my Sparkling Cider vintage sheet quilt but I am gated by the fact that I really need that funny little quilt template/ruler that the pattern suggests. So now after ordering the pattern, I have to order the darn little ruler thingie. It is a Quilt in a Day-Flying Geese template ruler. I don't think you have to have it but it certainly helps with the flying geese technique the pattern utilizes which is actually rather tricky, in a cool "who thought of that?" way!
I am always liking to be a few projects ahead of myself and while I am thinking of the sheet quilt, I also have these interesting items begging to be a quilt. Several choices of pillow ticking and a vintage pillow case with some lovely embroidery. What do you think? I am really leaning to very, very basic. Perhaps just simple squares. I am thinking that the embroidered flowers could be random scattered. And I think that I have some other vintage embroidered pieces that I could use in a similar fashion. Nice embroidery, or what?
