So, hey, the daffodils didn’t get ruined by any yucky wintry weather. And we’re back to full sunshine. Hurrah!
And I just put the last seam in the Going to Market baskets!
Hurrah! One piano key border is ready to go, but I need to figure out the inner border before I go any further…decisions, decisions.
This quilt makes me think of spring and dyeing Easter eggs. I was thrilled to be working with all batik backgrounds — they made the blocks and seams come out so nice and crisp. It really helped where there are seams coming together. I just love the pattern! But, I really need to learn how to count before making it again. Cough, cough, I had to make two more tiny blocks after I laid the thing out this morning.
All’s well that ends well!
Last but not least, do you listen to Pat Sloan’s Creative Talk Radio? I caught the podcast of yesterday’s show — guess who was on? Sarah! So, if you want a little insight into how Sarah plays with fabric, you can take a listen (it’s the March 23 show). In the first half of the show, there was also a fascinating interview with Frieda Anderson. A wonderful listen all around. Now that I have my miscellaneous software up to date, I can subscribe to all of these lovely things via iTunes. Because, you know, Jackie has a quilty podcast too. So many good things to listen to either while we are sewing or in the car or while exercising (sigh).
