Happy 4th guys!
scene where Paulette says to Elle, "You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want a hot dog real bad." LOL, it cracks me up. :P
WIP #1: Mario Quilt Along
Have you heard about the Super Mario Brothers quilt-a-long, hosted by Angela of Cut To Pieces? I'm so excited about this one - I think it's going to be the coolest quilt ever. A shipment of some of the fabrics arrived yesterday - woo hoo! Go check out the plans - it hasn't started yet. I'll warn you though, you need a LOT of fabric. I feel so bad about all the whining I've been doing over at the Flickr group, about the cost of all this fabric, lol! What can I say, I'm cheap! :P
In all seriousness, Angela put together a fantastic looking pattern, and even got the Fat Quarter Shop to hook us up with a discount code. I ended up going with Kona fabric, from Fabric.com, because the price couldn't be beat, but I'll be ordering the specially curated fat quarter pack from FQS.
WIP #2: Liberty of London Wall Hanging
Urghh. That's what I have to say about this one. Ughhhrrr!
I have a big blank space on the wall above my tv, between the two side bookcases. I wanted to make a simple wall hanging to go there and showcase my Liberty prints. This is what I came up with - I'm not happy with it. Somehow it just seems really bland, and the prints don't pop at all. I should have noticed this while I was making it, but I missed it. I'm hoping I can save it with great quilting and an interesting binding.
WIP # 3: EZ Dresden
Remember this guy? Yea, it's been a while. I haven't made much progress. Maybe I'll bust through it this weekend. Maybe... :)
WIP # 4: Paper pieced animals
I started this Sunday and I'm having a ton of fun with it. It's all I want to work on! I learned how to paper piece and found out I really like it. I created some templates if anyone would like to make their own. So far I have a squirrel and a pig. I'll be doing two blocks a week for eight weeks, so there is more to come.
So that is what has been going on over here, hopefully you guys are having a nice holiday! I don't have any plans for today, just a nice relaxing day of... relaxing. :)
Linking up with Lee, from Freshly Pieced. Jess, from SewCraftyJess, is hosting today. Thanks for stopping by!
