Improv and CCCold!!!!!!


                                 
Hi!!!!! How cold is it where you are?   You don't have to say you like my quilt but how cold is it and where are you?  If you are someplace warm I would love to hear about it!!!!!  We hit record lows last night!!!!! BBBRRR!!!!!  This was clue 3 from Moira @The Quilted Snail!!!!  My sister let me know she did not like the brown rectangles I added but it is the same brown that is in my focus fabric so maybe in the end it will work out...if not then I go to plan B!!!! To be decided at the end of the quilt along!!!!!  I also have a link to a really cute freeby by a very sweet lady who would like for everyone to see it!!!!  Cute Waldorf doll pattern!!!!! She (Inge) also has the tutorial and explains it very well!!!!!  Even I could make it!!!!  I plan on making one asap!!!! Hope you are staying warm and having some fun!!!!! I will be linking up to the buttons on my side bar!!!!  Hugs to all!!!!!

Ha!!!!  Of course I messed up right off the bat...I am famous for not following instructions correctly!!!!  But!!! But I decided to carry on and do what ever improv was necessary and to take advantage of a new design element!!!!  Did that sound creative?!!!!  Moira has given clue 3  and I will be working on that soon!!!! You are not to late to jump in and have fun with us!!!! Come on over!!!!  Also I know Claire over at KnitNKwilt is ready to start on clue number 3 also!!!!  She followed the instructions!!!!!  Have some fun today and all weekend!!!!!   hugs

Triangle Quilt Along!!!!!!


                                 
Hi Everyone!!! This is an update on my Quilt for the Triangle Quilt Along!!!!! Sassy Quilter!!!!! Triangle Quilt Along   See how green the grass is getting!!!!!!!  Lovin it!!!!! It was 70 degrees today!!!!! And not one drop of rain!!!!!  It took me a long time to come up with a layout I liked for these triangles!!!!! I used fabrics I already had and I didn't have the Mod Pop colors many are using for this!!!!!  Sooooo I wanted a different layout!!!!! Now if I could quit sewing the wrong ends to the other wrong ends this might turn out pretty!!!!!!   In my dreams it works!!!!!! Ha!!!!!  I am behind on almost everything!!!!!  Correction!!!! I am behind on everything!!!!  Hope you are getting great weather and have a great day!!!!!!  hugs to all
