Hi You All. Have you missed me? After working on Blog Hop projects for the last 3 months, I had to get my creative mind together to see what I would work on next. I started off this New Year with trying to complete project that were on the shelf (UFOs, Flimsies, and working with books and tools I have brought and never used.
So I finally got off my lazy but and grabbed the first thing I could get my hands on, my first every T-shirt project.
I cut these T-shirts out last year sometime for my Aunt who saved her T-shirts from her travels. She love the colors of blues and greens and I found this fabric for all places Wal-mart. As you can see, Ms. Jay had to have a closer look at it to give it her paw of approval. I only need to decide on a backing and off it will go to the quilter. I hoping for may in the next two weeks.
Since I have been home with a cold (my excuse for not going to work), I wanted to try doing a Tumbling Block quilt. I have always loved the look of this block and had brought a book by Marci L. Baker “Not Your Grandmother’s Tumbling Blocks. Well as every thing else that I buy, it has been sitting around for the last 2 or three years, I keep looking at it but never could get my color pallet together for it. I am definitely color challenged. Then last year I brought another book of hers call the ABC 3-D, that also had 3-D Tumbling blocks. I lent this book out to one of my girlfriends, she never got around doing anything with it, I got it back and decided to try my hand at it.
Well, with all things there is always a tool you need to do the project right. I realized that I had to buy a new ruler, the Clearview Triangle ruler, and not just one, either the 8”, 10” or 12”, so I brought the 8” and 12” to be on the safe side and it arrived yesterday. Not wanting to buy more fabric, I started look through my stash for some I would not have to think about to hard and found by LDM.
Now as you can see I am coming along quite well, the only mistake, (an this is only my opinion) the red should have been on the other size, but what the hell, it works. I am hoping for a finish by the end of the week, since I have to get over this cold and go back to work tomorrow.
I have 3 people for the Pay It Forward, your can read about it here and I will be telling you more about it tomorrow.
So Until Then
