Who says writing a blog isn't inspirational? I did NOT feel like making this block last night but I remembered that I told you all that I was going to make this block so I *had* to do it, right? When I got home from work DH asked me if I wanted to walk to the Chinese restaurant for dinner. Of course, are you kidding me? So we went to dinner and when I got home I felt like a slug but...I just *knew* you were holding your breath waiting to see this block...so here it is! I love the fabric but did not like making this block. Too many little seams to match.
Here is the little table runner made from left over fabric from 2 big quilts and then another small quilt. I got it back from Liz yesterday all quilted up and now I just need to put the binding on it.
I love this little quilt. I did the star in a class in Paducah and then added the fish border. I asked Liz to quilt something from the sea on it as I wanted to call it "Star of the Sea". So she just went to town.
There is a crab with some seaweed.
A little fishy,
And this little sea horse!
But my favorite is in the middle, a huge Sand Dollar! I think Liz did a fantastic job on this one!!
Then I decided I needed to make cushions for my patio furniture. I have these 4 wicker chairs and one love seat. I want to just cover pillows and use those in the furniture instead of making actual cushions (hate using piping and zippers). This is the fabric I found that I want to use. This one is aqua but it comes in gold, orange and lime so my dilemma is whether I need to use all the colors, just aqua or aqua and lime (a lot of my house is done in aqua and lime). Any suggestions?
