Time to travel again!
This time we are leaving the boys behind
and my husband's cousin is coming to stay with them!
This cousin sent me all her sailing tee-shirts
six months a year ago
and I finally motivated to put them all together.
Unfortunately, instead of cutting the tees evenly, she haphazardly cut them.
So, I had the idea that maybe as I went around and around with strips to even them out,
I could use different colors...
and make them into a giant black and white sail boat, with light blue sky, dark blue water, and black and white boat!
Ever make a quilt that looks totally different in real life than the one in your head? Ha!
The quilt is bigger than king,
and without space to watch the progress...
I didn't get enough contrast for the boat.
Ah well, it's (done!) super cozy with minkee backing (done!)
and made with lots of love (done!).
Here's Krista, my fabulous way-too-cute quilter holding it up for you to see!
My love affair with Kathy Doughty continues
as I obsessively make blocks for more Vintage Spin quilts!
My excuse is that I will be teaching this class in September.
Hmm...isn't using excuses a sign of addiction!
I am also working on the haphazard quilt I found on
I have also made
some of these fabric boxes
using the tutorial here:
I also used:
because she shows you how to hide the seams!
That's it for now...
next stop is France for a bit of rekindling the romance
and the European Patchwork Festival!
