A Productive Easter Sunday
I hope the Easter bunny was good to you both ...
I figure this is how all of you in the north feel!! We don't have any snow, thank goodness!!!
I finished the top of the basketball quilt today!! I'll bring it with me to quilt at your place later this week. Here's how it turned out so far:
Dallas pointed out that the two middle rows aren't exactly even. I didn't make them that way because I thought it would look okay and I think it does!!! The next big question, how to quilt it??? I think I'm going to use black thread and do a large meandering pattern. The t-shirts won't stretch so much if I do that.
I pulled this old magazine after I finished the basketball quilt top.
It's from 2006!! That's old now!! LOL!! I still really like the quilt on the cover. It's simple and would be quick to do. This is the quilt that I really really like from that magazine!!!
I can't remember when I started to work on this quilt. Obviously, a long time ago based on the age of the magazine. I was reminded how much I liked the quilt and thought maybe I should finish it or at least get it going a little more. I was able to finish 1/2 of the quilt top today.
I didn't do any planning. I just started sewing and this happened ...
And this ...
And this ... Which isn't that bad!
And these three too ...
There are a bunch of poka dot squares and this is the only one that I've used so far. So that means that the other 1/2 of the quilt will be over run with them.
That's what happens to when I don't make a plan. Why can't I be random?
Well I've watched my way into Season 6 of Vampire Diaries and now it's time for this quilter to head to bed!!!
