You may (or may not) remember back in March (wow that long ago?) when I won some awesome fabric scraps from Cherry House. I have been quite busy making something from these scraps, actually I have designed an entire quilt around them. Do you remember my "peeks", here and here? I had the top almost finished but needed to do some border work and then make a back. Well this is the finished top. I really want to know if anyone likes it and if you think anyone would purchase this pattern if I take the time to write it up. (I'll be holding my breath...)
I decided to make a pieced back too using up the leftover blocks I had. I ended up using every bit of the fabric I had won and used the blue dot and the white from my stash. Here is an up close of one of the blocks.
I do have a picture of the back but I need to re-take it as my shadow is in the way, LOL. I will show you a close up of the back and you can either A)imagine the blue on the sides extends all the way out or B)if you really *need* to see it go to my Flickr account and view it with my shadow all over it, lol.
If I decide to write up a pattern it will need a name. Any suggestions? I may have a little something for the person that suggests the name I choose, you never know with me!
With EQ7 coming out I *finally* loaded EQ6 on my computer so I think I will play with writing this pattern up in it and see how it goes. I ordered the EQ7 upgrade so I guess I had better get moving and figure the earlier version out, huh?
Now just to show you the kind of "helpers" I happen to have here is Aiedn in her favorite "spot". I usually sit in this big green chair with my lap top on the left arm of the chair. She stalks me waiting for me to sit down and then assumes this position. Usually with her head on the arm of the chair just under the bottom of the lap top and her paw extended up kneading me as she purrs contentedly. Like so:
Yesterday though her brother who had been sleeping quite contentedly here
in an old pajama grams container decided that I actually needed another cat on my right side between my hip and the right arm of the chair like so:
I am quite happy to admit that this is OK now that there is actual space between my giant arse and the arm of the chair! I have managed to lose another pound this week bringing the grand total up to just under 36 pounds total since I began!
I would be most appreciative to you all if you will help me choose a name and then let me know if this should become a "real" pattern. I have thought about altering it to work with Jelly Rolls too, what do you think about that? I hope you are all enjoying your time off, I know I am. My boys came home from Canada on Friday and so my house is in chaos again, sigh. I really need to mulch today and do some more weeding (it was much more fun to sew yesterday as it was soooooo HOT here) today is a little cooler so may have to make my way outside.
Happy Memorial day to everyone in the US. Thanks to our brave men and women that have fought and who are still fighting to keep us free!!
