PostSubject: old QT swap and nine patches..   Fri Jun 12, 2009 6:21 am

I am free for the next 24 hours I think I am going to pull out my QT blocks we swapped "fall swap blocks" and my nine patches as sashing and see what happens. I have to get some of these together....I am working nights but now I get to sleep when I want.. I just hope that my light on MY machine doesnt' go out or I will have to call Annie's DH... you know when you really want to do something ....karma...

Deb you just keep surpassing yourself, I love it, its beautiful and joining hte two swaps is again a stroke of genius. Is the border fabric farms and pumpkins? Looks cute,well done, you deserve a happy friends quilt (sigh, I dont think I was in either of those swaps cry2 )

Congratulations on a beautiful quilt, will you quilt it with swirly autumn leaves and whispers of wind? clap bowing its great, love it!

Well we will have to fix that won't we.. after the mini it might be time to do another swap...but a different kind of one.. lemme think what we can do... that won't be till fall..
I am already starting on another quilt with the rest of the ninepatches and have come up with a great idea...
yes you are right it is a "harvest fabric' the blocks were fall themed so I wanted to keep to that ...I had to fussy cut the fabric cause the small boarder was only on the selvedged edge.. but I went to the quilt store yesturday and found a fantastic Kaffee fabirc with fall trees and now I want that.. I didn't have enough fabric to miter my corners and found the pumkin fabric.. I have loads of that and wanted it to be on my backing..
the quilting.. honestly I was going to hand quilt with just a grid.. there are to many seams.. your idea sounds lovely but to sophisticated for me.. LOL
I am not sending my quilts out for LAQ anymore..

If I was hand quilting I reckon Id go stitch in the ditch too, I have a quilt set aside I was hand quilting I just never enjoyed hand quilting that one much, thinking lately perhaps I should just in the ditch it on the machine and finish the darn thing, after all, it was like my 33rd bday present lmao the fabric you found yesterday sounds beautiful, so much pretty fabric to choose from, some just catches your eye and stays in your head. Look forward to what swap idea you concoct :D
