Can you believe I've done 21 weeks of this? (I'm a bit shocked myself.)
To celebrate, there shall be Rainbows Around The World!
And resurrection from the dead:
(I call it 'frankenbatting'!)
For the purpose of hoisting the colours high!
DRINK UP, ME HEARTIES, YO HO!
(It was 'Talk Like A Pirate Day' on Monday 19th Sept.)
The cushion covers are to match the Gothic Summer Sampler quilt (see below), and I found this awesome tutorial on how to make quilted pillow covers - practical, good pictures, nice humour, very useful!
If you look reeeeeeallly closely, you might be able to see my free-motion quilting on the blocks. It's wobbly as heck and not exactly the most stylish, but it's not bad for a first try.
And then there's the Gothic Summer Sampler - the top of which was completed this week!
Now, I gotta work out how I'm going to quilt this baby!
I've finally started layout out my palette choices for this quilt, although I still think I'm going to go with the Bloggers Quilt Uber-Fest QAL in October.
And lo, there was much stash digging:
The uncovering of the stash:
Looks kinda pitiful when all laid out on the floor there. I'm sure it is pretty pitiful when compared to other people's stashes...
So far Petaled Purples is winning my vote:
Although Autumn Leaf might give it a run for its money:
The colours don't look right because of my phone camera, which is adjusting bluewards. But they match pretty well in RL, I think.
