a quilt story continues
The funny thing is... I work full time. I fit in the quilting around my work life and so most often, my quilting happens on the weekend. I started a project a while ago but I had to keep it top secret. I started a decoy quilt so that I could still have some stuff to blog about. That decoy quilt is the Card tricks quilt or Clovers by Figtree quilts. I have not progressed much with it so it is officially a work in progress. I also made my Mum her table cover and I finished the French Roses quilt. And I started the Sparkling Cider Vintage Sheet quilt too. I guess I was pretty busy. Because all the while I was working on another quilt.
I needed a solid. And Husband helped me pick it out. I also need a lot of black. Kona black to exact. I was making a quilt from A Practical Guide to Modern Patchwork. Elizabeth Hartman's fabulous book. if you have not seen it or if you do not own it, this is a book that is a must have. It has such fabulous information in it and great quilt designs. I decided to make the kitchen window quilt. So cool. I cannot wait to show it off. Stay tuned!
