Good Morning, Sunshine! Yeah! We have had a lot of cloudy, dreary weather as of late and it kinda gets me down. I don't really like cold weather. I really don't like wet cold weather and that is what is in the forecast for later tonight and tomorrow. I'm thinking I will go to the grocery store and stock up. Then I will come home and do some baking. That always gets me in a better mood.
On the quilty stuff. Yesterday, after our club president left we talked about the quilt we want to make for her. I took my redwork idea. Several don't like to embroider so that wasn't the best idea. We always have the dilemma of the 1/4" seams not being the same. We looked at books we have on hand; and well, several were absent yesterday so we didn't come to a decision but we got some good ideas. We want to embroider or sign our names on the blocks to make it special.
I have been looking at http://www.quilterscache.com/ for 12" blocks. I am to have one done before the Feb. guild meeting. I could look for hours at the different designs. I have also checked out some books at the library when DH went deer hunting last weekend. One of the books is
Triangle Tricks from That Patchwork Place published by Martingale & Company. They demonstrate in the book a nifty way of making triangle units. Included in the book is a chart for making different size finished blocks from 2" to 12". I will be trying out this method and let you know.
Blessings to all.
