You may remember I had started working on these kite blocks a while back. Blogs tempt me and inspire me all the time. I first saw the kite blocks on Wanda's blog, and I decided I would get the Go! die and make a quilt from them. The blocks above I made from batiks and Kaffee Fassett and Phillip Jacobs prints. What can I say? I just lost interest.
Then this week I saw this post on KatyQuilts and I got interested again! I know that a lot of people have gotten bored with blogging and quit, but I learned to quilt by reading blogs. And I am so thankful for those of you who still take the time to share your experiences.
I quilted this one - the nine patch/rail fence - and it did not make me happy! It is set on point and the corner setting triangles, no matter how carefully I sewed,
s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d. I did the best I could, but I'm not altogether happy with it. Hopefully it will look all right once I get it trimmed and get the binding on it.
Just for grins, and to prove that we are everywhere - the latest issue of the AAA magazine features quilting in Texas. Of course I'm pretty sure the fact that the QUILT FESTIVAL!!!! (Can you tell I'm excited about that?) is next week, also plays into that being chosen for the cover.
Also just for grins, there is a small bunch of bananas from our yard ripening on the patio!
I hope you've had a great week with plenty of things that have had you grinning even before you got here!
Hugs and kisses,
