I did accomplish a few things this weekend and it felt great. I got two (of four) quilts pin-basted before I ran out of pins. I could have finished the other two if I had wanted to go buy more pins, but I didn't want to leave the house. The Fractured and the HST quilts were the ones I basted, and I'm going to start quilting the Fractured first.
In the meantime, because I don't have enough other quilts and UFOs to keep me busy, I joined the Midnight at the Oasis QAL hosted by Sharon at Fabrics & Flowers and Jess at The Elven Garden.
Here you can see just some of the mess I've got piled around my sewing room as I was picking fabrics for this quilt. I finished all four "pieced triangles" of the center block and now have to sew the setting triangles and the circle thing in the middle of the block. Kinda fun, I have to say!
I was also the lucky winner of Vicki's drawing last Monday for a FQ of her hand-dyed fabric. Every Monday she picks a winner from the participants of the previous Friday's Fractured QAL. The odds are pretty good everyone will win eventually since there aren't millions doing the QAL. Thank goodness, or I would never win! :)) I'm not just being negative... I'm just not lucky that way! Except this time, and look at that gorgeous fabric!!
I loved the little packet Vicki sent which included a perfect-for-a-quilter greeting card, her business card, a pad of sticky notes and that wonderful fabric. Thanks Vicki - I love it and I'll definitely put it to very good use.
