What a fun weekend. I really wanted to make a quilt for one of my young Bible study friends. I had already fussy cut some nursery rhyme fabrics. This went together so easy and I love it. I want to put a small yellow border in addition to the blue. I made one similar to this last spring but used white as sashing.
Guess what came in the mail Friday!!!!! Oh yes Liberated Quiltmaking II.
Gwen has done it again. This new book does not take the place of her first Liberated Quiltmaking but it is very good. I absolutely adore reading Gwen. You can hear her talking when you read it. She does not take herself too seriously. One of my favorite quotes. "This isn't rocket science, all we are doing is sewing pieces of fabric together. " Isn't it the truth? Who cares of the points match? If it is too small add a strip, too large cut it off! You have to get this book!
This is one of Gwen's liberated star quilts.
Gwen spends a good deal of time on her basket quilts. I have to say it doesn't really speak to me right at the moment. I have seen some great basket quilts and maybe it will soon be something I want to try.
We also had a very good service at church today.
I will need to remember my good weekend this week. I have a colonoscopy scheduled for Tuesday. YUK!!! I hear the procedure is no big deal but what you have to do before is pretty bad! Wish me luck.
