I added two more blocks to the JL QAL. this time, I used a really nice pink floral. There are several shades of pink in it. These will probably not end up near each other in the final quilt. I just put them together on the design wall so I could see the pattern. I liked it so much, I decided to make a small one for this months AAQI quilt.
This will finish out as a 9" square with the binding. I am going to quilt it with red thread with diagonal lines. I have wanted to make a red and white quilt all year, so here it is.
I also made two more blocks for the BOM sampler. I am amazed at how different the jade fabric looks in both photos. It is really about half way between both.
The other big thing I did today was to load a quilt for BASICs on the frame. This top and back were pieced by Irene Armok. You can see her work at her blog. She does many wonderful things.
This one is going to get an all over stipple. I really like this quilt. Someone is going to be very lucky to get it.
Tomorrow, I will be with Bella, so not much studio time I think. I think I will do a bit of quilting on the BASICs quilt before I pick her up at pre-school.
Have a joy filled day.
