Done with the Blues

It has been a while since my last post. Sorry about that but now I am back so let's get down to business.

What happened with these :



Yes, they got together and made a beautiful flimsy!!!

Shakespeare in the Park designed by Judy Martin


I am so happy with it. It's just so gorgeous to me. I started this one on May 22nd and it is already completed. Don't think I have ever done a big quilt so fast. It's 94 inches square, not quilted. It is the first time I think about a quilt so much. Everywhere I went, I kept thinking "oh, that blue would look good in Shakespeare!" Now, I am finally freeeeeee of all that!! On the other hand, now that I am looking at the pictures, I think I have some unpicking to do. The white stars in the dark blocks, in one of the diagonal line, are in the same position three in a row. The more I look at the picture, the more it is annoying me. Let's try another picture, shall we?

Okay? Yep! gotta change that! Arrrrghhhh!!

Since this is no longer on my Design Wall, what is? I was actually thinking about that last night; what will I do next? I know that I have to finish a few projects because they are taking over my sewing room and I don't like ... sharing my sewing room!!! SOOOOO, on with some finishing but which one? Hmmmm?!!?

I know that I want a break from the blues. I did Stars Blooming for my In-laws, (which took like forever).


I did this little place mat for a friend. 


Then I had to catch up on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge and did two blue challenges in one month: Indigo and Aqua.


So, I am all "blued" out, lol.

While looking at my RSC, I decided to take the blocks out to see what kind of fun they are having and they are having plenty of it. So cheerful after all that blue!


I will be doing more oranges of course since it is the month for orange. YEAH!!


and then, I will finish something. My list of UFOs is long, so I am positive I will find something to keep my hands busy. :^D

I am joining Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday. Also joining Love Laugh Quilt for Monday Making. See ya there!

On Tuesday, I will join Nicky from Mrs. Sew and Sow for Scraptastic Tuesday.


Until next time ... sssssmile!

  2. FWIW, I had to look awfully hard to see the offending stars. Not bad enough to rip in my book. And I love the pinwheel/HST pattern--may have to borrow it. claire aka knitnkwit.wordpress.com
