Here and there I have managed to sew! ;0) These are more of this great pattern.
Finally finished one of my pinwheel party tops. I refuse to take the button off my side bar until both quilts are done. You girls hold me accountable now!
The Jennifer Paganelli blocks...
and the Henna Garden blocks...
are my favorite!!! I know, you're shocked!!
I bought the background at Connecting Threads, so when I wanted an orange solid for the back that is where I went. Perfect match, and the quality is great. The price was made this a home run!! I just don't feel like quilting it now, so after I finish the back, it will wait patiently until fall.
While shopping for the backing, I couldn't resist these little life saver prints. They just happened to want to play with another bargain fabric (the squares) from my stash. The solids are some Moda Bella that I won a while back. These are all saying Irish Chain to me right now. We will see.
Did join a quilt a long. Another button on the side bar...sigh. But I love the pattern and had been keeping this little stack back for a quilt for Treasure. I think that the Neptune is lovely, and will remind us of our family vacations to Gulf Shores Alabama.
Had some difficulty with static cling making the template stick to my ruler. Since I have a ton of triangles to cut, I didn't want to piddle with it, so a touch of spray basting to the template fixed that up in a jiffy. Not too much, or you will spend your time peeling fabric from the template!!
Using Kona Herb for the background. Liked what I saw with people using Kona Stone, but I liked how the Herb looked with the fabrics too. Plus it is the color of a stormy sea (and Treasure's eyes), bonus!
Now I am feeling nervous at the risk! These are the selvedges and the scraps that will become the back, and may be something else too!
So now we are caught up!!
