I liked it, but not enough to use it this time.
I think the black really works with this one. It sets the center apart from the party, but keeps it together.
And now for the fun!! Not. I was using the seam ripper to pull the foundation off of the blocks, but they were starting to warp...everything's on the bias. So, I'm poking a hole in the foundation and then gently running the blade of the scissors down the length of the seam. Hopefully it will keep the warping to a minimum, and I will only have to fix a couple of tenting spots. I'll keep you posted, of course;)
I've been reading the comments left on my latest blogs:
To Love: One of these days I will actually go out and get some of those color catchers;)
To Katie: You can come over and play anytime!!
To Beth: Yes, I did leave some clothes at my mom's house in order to get all that fabric home;) And bought another suitcase from the local thrift store to make sure I got it all!;) As for the tattoo work....yeah, I plan on adding this....
I've been wanting this one done for years. I will have it cleaned up and drawn out a little better. I'm also thinking of adding an old world map with the Asian and North American coastlines. All in due time.
To Liriopia: Where do I find all these novelty prints? JoAnn's alot lately, but I scan the quilt shops for novelty stuff all the time. I figure I can spend my top dollar on stuff like that, and then wait for sale's to find "fillers", aka tone on tone stuff. I figure with as fast as the market moves these days, if I don't buy it when I see it, it won't be there when I want it;)
I've got to get on with my day here. We are pulling out Halloween decor, sorting through boxes, and have plans for another bike ride later this afternoon.
Take care, and Happy Quilting!!
