This is a grouping of 2 1/2" strips I put together to start making a quilt for our younger daughter. What, you may ask does that have to do with a benefit of blogging? Well, I took a picture of it. And then I took one of the strips out and took another picture.
I think it's a definite improvement, don't you? Probably (maybe) I would have figured it out without taking those pictures, but I really think the pictures helped. Plus, I like to document the quilts I make. I enjoy going back and looking at them, because most of them do not live here. Most of them I've given to someone else.
I've made some more of these Disappearing Sixteen Patches.
The cheater panel on the back of the chair is a big piece and will be the backing. The purple-y piece to the right will be sashing.
And on the quilt frame right now is this one for our den. I made its mother last year and this one is made from leftovers of that one. The one I made last year was for a cover for the couch in the den. When you have as many pets as we do (2 cats and 2 dogs) and they all live in the house - you cover as many things as you possibly can. Of course that's not even mentioning the chickens. Thank God, they live outside in their own house!
Anyway, I've made a start at quilting it. I think it's kind of neat that it will match the cover on the sofa.
Bruno would rather be outside herding chickens.
And Chloe is pretty sure I could come up with something that would be interesting to her if I'd only try.
Mr Cutie Pie and I worked outside a bit today. It was such a pretty day. I am so far behind outside it's not even funny. Lots of work to do. Ho. Hum.
Hope you've had or are having a wonderful weekend, full of fun and interesting things and lots of love!
Hugs and kisses,
