Can I just say that sometimes, just sometimes, I get a little discombobulated? Well, somewhere along the line I got the idea that I was at the end of this hop, not the beginning. My ideas were percolating along nicely. I was planning on a small piece to add to the little quilts I did during the Project Quilting challenge. I never have really worked in two colors before….30, yes, lots of the same color in different fabric, yes, but not two actual, factual colors.
I also didn’t really think too much about it because I was knee-deep in designing my row for the row-along in September. (It’s done, by the way, but I can’t show you yet.) So, after getting home from a rather long day (we had graduation at my little school this evening and I was doing work stuff from the wee hours to the much later hours), I was cruising my favorite blogs when I discovered that my day was tomorrow…not in a week or two but tomorrow! Well, it was time for the gloves to come off and the sewing to begin!
I’ll get a better picture in the morning and, obviously, we are only at the top stage but here’s my little mini – and my first, two color quilt!
I love how “punched up” the red looks next to the white and the crisp contrast…of course, I could add a blue border and be ready for the 4th! Again, my apologies for being so under-prepared for this one…I’ll make it up on the next one!
Do hop over to my fellow bloggers and see what the more together bloggers have done…I’m sure it will be awesome. I’m going to set some time aside to finish this little one and will post it before the hop ends. Be sure to leave a comment at each blog then hop over to http://www.seamstobesew.com and enter to win a Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate! Thank you to the intrepid Marian for corralling all of us (especially me) and making all this fun happen! (And, of course, to the Fat Quarter Shop…I mean, seriously, can you even look at their site without drooling?) So, go forth and hop…come back and see my finished project and maybe, just maybe, I’ll add a little something new to it!
Oh, and happy quilting!
