one, but this is for Real (this time). Alewives. In Maine, but boy, do they deliver. And for those of you who really know me, the shop name alone makes it special.
I mean, look at these veggies! Peas and Pods! I love them so. And where else would you find onion fabric?
I'm still deep into the Triangle Madness inspired by Liz. I'm even leading my daughter's Brownie troop in making quilts for Project Linus. Each girl got 12 HST's and made their own design with them. This is my mock up. I can't wait to show you what those girls came up with. Every single one is different! Thanks Liz, for turning me onto Half Square Triangles!
I just had to take a shot of this pretty pile of Brownie trimmings (hmmm...that doesn't sound so good...)
Finally, I snapped some shots of my process in quilting a grid on my boyish blocks quilt. I was rather proud of myself for just figuring out how to make nice straight lines with the crazy tools I happened to have lying around. Like a few 1x2's I'm still waiting to finish the studio windows with, and some painter's tape (my new favorite can't-buy-in-a-quilting-store tool).
The lengths of wood sure are long and straight... and it's a cinch to measure from one seam to the wood.
What's your favorite can't-find-in-a-quilting-store tool?
P. S. 10 more days til Christmas..... ooohhhh!
