I do love the way the small 4-patch squares look in the white border.
A while back Quiltmaker magazine held giveaways of the 100 Blocks annual issue and I won a copy at Stitched Buy http://www.stitchedbuy.com , Sandi Blackwell's blog. Sandi has a block in the issue. I love this issue and am sure I will make something using the blocks. For instance, I found a beautiful star pattern in last year's issue that I used for the Quilt of Valor Charity Challenge. This issue is a neat resource.
Thank you Sandi and Quiltmaker.
Annie of Ruby Slipperz had a giveaway http://www.rubyslipperz106.blogspot.com/ and I won a great cookbook and pattern book, Quilter's Cookbook by On Pins and Needles Quilt Shop. Love it.
Thank you, Annie.
Barbie needed some street clothes so I made her a dress and jacket set. Very chic. Modeling the ensemble is my Leo Barbie, from the Zodiac series. This Barbie makes an appearance each August, then goes back to where she came from. However, Senior Barbie needed help modeling, so Barbie Leo appeared.
Senior Barbie looks ravishing in her evening dress, a very tight sheath with a tulle overskirt. Whoa, Senior Barbie!
I bought a package of Dritz brand Curved Needles for Tying Quilts at Joann's last week because notions were 50% off . I used one for basting my Wreath Quilt sandwich and it's so much better than a straight needle. What took me so long to try this? And I recommend Dritz. The needle is very smooth and glides through the fabric.
Hope you are all well.
God Bless You.
