I have not forgotten my birthday quilt in which many of you were kind enough to participate. The quilt is not yet put together, but I am still working on making some words and will soon attempt to make it into a top. Here is what I laid out while working on more words at a recent retreat:
Some day this is going to be a gorgeous quilt!
I was thinking that this blog owner hadn't posted much lately, and then remembered this is a GROUP blog, and I am one of its authors! Duh!
Some of you may have seen this at my blog, but I thought I'd post it here, too. It's a house block I made with a zipper in it. And inside the house is a giraffe!
I've been having fun with zippers lately. This is one of many zipper projects that I've been playing with for the last month or so.
It's been a long time since anyone has posted here. Aren't you feeling very unruly? Here's a little quilt (27" x 40") that I finished this week. I found the "HOW TO" about the birds in a fun book called Hot Flashes of Inspiration by Kandi Kelderman and Kim Schissel.
Here's a close-up of one of the blocks. I quilted the whole thing side to side with straight lines about 1/2 inch apart. It took a while, but gave the quilt a neat texture and feel.
Here is the word I made for Carol (Giraffe Dreams) for her birthday quilt. I'm a little late, but she assures me I'm not too late! Whew!
I'm not entirely pleased with the C or the R, both of which could be a little larger. I started with those two letters instead of the E or A, which was probably where my problem happened, but all in all, I'm happy with this. As long as Carol is happy, I'm happy!
