gini:and another beautiful design, judy i love the layout.
Thanks Gini, but since I posted the EQ7 design of the next quilt, I've changed it! I decided to go with a design in the center of the tan blocks instead of doing embroidery. I'm paper piecing those center star blocks. The fabric is a coordinating one that I ordered along with the Jody Bergsma wildlife fabric.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Well I finally got my maple leaf on the quilting frame. I don't know why but everytime I finish a quilt I describe it as my favorite... lol Then I give it to my hubby (which secretly means I get to keep it haha) Great plan........What do you think?
Judy T-Bellingham:Thanks Nana and Kris. I'm playing around in EQ7 with the design for the new son in law to be. Here is what I've come up with so far. I'm going to start cutting the tan blocks today.
I love that design Judy. The fabrics are amazing too. Nicely done.
It's so easy to lose a day when playing in EQ.
MaxNTopeka:Here is my lap quilt #2 for this weekend, all finished except for it's final washing. (One more to go!) It is similar to my Dragon Eyes quilt, but the blocks are smaller. I used a batik on the back with little green lizards on it. (I think they are lizards!) The back wasn't quite wide enough, so I put a row of the blocks down the middle.
This is absolutely beautiful Max. So who's getting this one?
MaxNTopeka:Kris--I peeked at the Project of Doom last night. I bought my background fabric today. Fingers crossed the PP gets easier the more I do of it.
I do hope you join us Max. The first two blocks are up and I can't wait to see everyone's blocks.
I love the layout on the wildlife quilt. It is going to be really pretty when finished.
judy i really like what you've done with those center blocks. very nice

Great lap quilt. Love the colors. The back with the stripe of blocks is perfect. Love those lizards.
I really like the "star" pattern in the tan blocks. Really neat.
i neglected to lock the main door coming into the offices, bad gini, some guy was up here snooping around. he seemed nice enough, wanted to chat. that is so foreign to me, i would never go into an unmarked door to a building if i didn't belong there. he was probably bored. there is nothing going on in town these days. the door is now locked, sam and debbie (our landlord) are not going to be happy with me. i was in sam's office and opened the door to the hall, when i heard a noise. he was peeking in the window to my room.
That is kinda scarey. Glad he was a nice man and left without issue.
and after, unexpected interruptions, frogging and phone calls, i finally got the interior borders done to my baltimore quilt. nana, i really need lessons on how to whip out a quilt. i'm getting more and more fussy in my old age.
I am still pinning mine. I may actually have it sandwiched before bed and again it may not get completed until tomorrow. I am about pinned out. I have 900 safety pins and just about all of them are going to end up in this quilt. Geesh... I remember why I cut the size down on my kings since this one. Now I average about 108 in square instead of the 120.
i wasn't scared, exactly, sandpoint is a pretty safe small town, unless you're involved in meth production. anytime there is crime here, meth is involved, and it is mostly against other meth heads. it was just, weird, and i'm not into snooping. hey, i'm married to a snoopy guy. it coulda been sam.

I know my bar keeps rising so I just decided that I am now going for quality and not quantity. After virtually nothing to show for 2012 thus far, during this past week I broke out of that mode and now I have projects wherever I turn. However, that means the quilt that "had" to be quilted before I worked on anything else is sitting there neglected. I would much rather design and piece than quilt.
Nana--I am giving in and I have a bin of floral fabric on my computer/cutting desk just waiting to be measured and cut to make something similar to your beautiful garden quilts.
