June 25th, 2009 - What I’ve been Doing…..

….is trying to use up some of the fabric that I bought on the weekend.

I made the border for this comfort quilt. My friends and I swapped 9-patches  for this.I think it’s a pattern from a Fons and Porter “Easy Quilts” magazine.

 And I made this one too. I think I like the blue one better but then I always like blue.  Like my new quilt hanger? My old ones were very cranky every time I asked them to hold up a quilt so I could get a picture of it. So I went to the hardware store and bought some clothesline and 2 screw hooks. My son drilled the holes for the hooks, screwed the hooks in  and then tied a fancy knot in the line. Voila! A new quilt hanger. It doesn’t complain  or hang the quilts crooked. The only thing about this is if it rains, no pictures. I think I will even use it in the winter.



Have a great week (which is almost over)

    I like both quilts and it looks like a quick quilt to make. Whoever receives them will be happy.
    Aren’t son’s great??? Nice quilt holder.

    I like the design you used. I think it is great to make the same pattern over and over with subtle changes. It is really a great way to explore the flexibility. I would love to see this in hot pinks, lime greens and turquoise!

    Thanks for dropping in and reading my blog.

    PS I don’t know if you read Field Trips in Fiber (http://vickiwelsh.typepad.com/field_trips_in_fiber/ but she is doing a stash busting project, too. I thought perhaps you might want to look as her progress? Unless, of course, you are both working on the same project. Hope to see you dropping by my blog again!
