The Blame Game. Yep, Sandy "STILL" blames me for this DP group effort. I can't seem to shake that association. Sandy's breaking me down. I guess I will have to accept the all seem to think it began with me. But, one last time, "It wasn't me! I guess the quilt that will be so named is in my future.
Celtic Solstice has been on the frame now for almost one week. I am having a mental block on my quilting decisions for Celtic Solstice. I talked about following the lines of the outer boarder. I am not sure what I want to do with the orange/blue border. What I am sure of, I think, is that the center will have an all over design.
Boxy Stars progress, you can find the free pattern over at Bonnie Hunter's blog, Quiltville's Quips & Snips. This is one of my leader/ender projects. The blocks are coming along. No size in mind for the top. I guess I'll be done when I think its big enough.
"It Wasn't Me" Quilt". Still in my head. I hope to begin sketching the design soon. Once I get something that resembles a quilt, I 'll share my progress. Graph paper and colored pencils here I come! This sketching thing will be a first for me. I am way out of my comfort zone.
This is what I will be carrying my hexagons in. It has a second layer that can hold the basted hexies. I will put the completed ones in there, once I find the bottom of the container! :-D
I mentioned Sue Daley's YouTube videos, if interested, you can find those on her website. She does beautiful hand work. Who knew hexies could look so good!

I am bent on learning how to quilt all types of feathers. Every YouTube video, DVD I watch or blog I read stress practict. I pratice drawing quilting designs on a piece of plexiglass I had purchased a while back. I have sketch books and drawing pads for practicing. Now, reading someones blog, not sure who's, I have now reverted back to playing with children's toys. For what ever reason, this has taken me to a carefree place. Just in case you didn't notice, there's a note for Sandy, of "Quilting for the Rest of Us".
