It's the coldest day of the year...so far. Why does this weather seem to translate to being a sew day? I don't know, but I'll run with it!
I've done a bit of catch-up sewing this morning. First on the agenda was my temperature quilt for 2020...
I'm really liking this. Each goose represents the forecasted high temperature in Celcius for each day. Today I got to use a new colour for -8 degrees!
I've been working on a Leaders and Enders project for a few months. Today I arranged what I have completed so far on to the design wall....
I have two small bins next to my sewing machine...one holds 1" strips of lighter scraps...the other has 1" strips of darker strips. The centres of my log cabins are orange 1.5" squares.
These are made into log cabin blocks that are 4.5" unfinished. I know there is not a lot of contrast, but hopefully enough. This is truly what a quilt means to me, using up the scrappy bits.
I think I'll carry on until I get a full-sized quilt because I can tell already that I'm going to love this quilt!
I'm taking a BOM class at my LQS in Waterford, Quilt Junction...the pattern is My Kinda Town.
I completed the first block in modern fabrics, which I do love...but the block wasn't really doing it for me. Then I had the idea of using my leftover Japanese taupes from my Queen's Garden quilt.
Here are my two blocks...I'll have to re-do the one on the right...
I am linking up with My Quilt Infatuation....then I am headed to Caledonia to the local radio station to pick up my prize...I won a contest for a Valentine's dinner for Saturday night....woohoo!!!
Happy Valentine's Day!
