This and that


I adore pictures of bobbins of pretty thread - maybe I should share more of them. My secret quilt for a magazine used 12 of these bobbins for the quilting. And it is in the hands of Mr. Purolator for a 7 - 10 day trip - which will get it there just in time. And this means no more secrets for a while. I am totally evaluating this secret project for publication thing, as I personally enjoy sharing things as I work on them so much better.

Some improv x's tonight.

Tonight I am going to work on these improv Xs. I get to make a mini quilt to be included in the Canadian Quilter's Association cross Canada travelling quilt show called "It's time for Colour!" I am so flattered to have been asked to participate. I want to make sure that my quilt has a real modern flair, so I am thinking something similar to my Landmarks mini. On the other hand, I also still debate doing one like the very first Cycles quilt - maybe with some improv "made" fabric in all the colours. Either way, I need to get it in the mail on Monday morning.

If you have not yet entered the draw for this beautiful bundle sponsored by Sew Me A Song, go here to do that. I will close the draw tonight after supper - about 7 pm MST.
