One Monthly Goal: Fancy Forrest #2
This quilt needs only some quilting and some binding, I think, as it has been awhile since I looked at it. I was thinking it might be the loon, but as our time in Maine is less this month, due to work obligations, I am committing to getting this one done. I made another version two years ago (you can read about it here). I had quite a bit of fabric left, almost enough to make this one, and decided to do the thistles with purple and the lightning bug with a yellow bum. I love this quilt and think I know who might be getting it!
This quilt is nearly done. HA HA. I always say this when it looks like this. Really, it just needs a little border, some sandwiching and quilting and binding. I am keeping up with the group so far, let’s see if backing and sandwiching can happen this week! This quilt will go to our guild’s benefit quilt group. First benefit quilt of the year (for me)!
Well, my internet friend Sandra is egging me on again. I am doing this at my pace, don’t think I’ll get 30 but I do think it will help me get my design mojo going. I used Quiltology on my Ipad and it took nearly no time to do it. I am intrigued by the uploading of fabric and the quick way this worked. I may draw some too or use EQ8, but for now I at least have one done. Mostly the reason I want to do this is the next story…..
Yes, I am an Island Batik Ambassador for 2018.
On Monday 22 lbs of fabric was shipped to me! Friday it is supposed to be delivered. I get to work on projects for and with about 40 other ambassadors from all over this country and a few international quilters. I have always wanted to design quilts and so, I will try to do a few for the bigger challenges…a lot of things coming together at once. First up is Galentine’s Day, February 13 and MiniLove during this month, too. Keep your eyes open!!!
And one more thing. I am looking at increasing my machine quilting skills and noticed a lot of classes are on sale at Craftsy (affiliate link – I make a little money if you sign up). Browse along with me; some of Angela Walters classes are really calling my name!
