|Virginia Star Itty Bitty|
Okay, so after neatly avoiding (though I LOVE it) the Farmer's Wife craze, I have fallen victim to another quilt a long! I know, you are all shocked. Finished this one last night.
|Greek Cross Itty Bitty|
Completed this one this morning. I really felt called to add some purple to this project. (Again, I know you are all shocked!) ;0)
Here they are playing so nicely together. I hadn't expected to even do this many so soon, but I find I need a little stress relief from...
BIAS!!!!!!!!! I am loving the look, but apparently my scant 1/4 inch isn't scant enough, or I have stretched them somehow. I am getting bulls eye warping. Only thing I know to do at this point is starch the*&@! out of them. I still love the pattern, and adore the fabric, but I am disappointed in the outcome. I will press on! -Pun intended!- One day I will even do this pattern again and get it right!!!!! (Why did the "Eye of the Tiger" just start playing in my head?)
Oh, and one last admission. I am horrible at random. Can't do it...something about control. So, I have a whole schematic drawn up with a complex organizational pattern to make it look....random. Dee would affirm that I am a little neurotic.
Other WIPs (aka "The Doo-doo List):
1. Binding on April Showers May Flowers---still.
2. Catch up Birdie Stitches Blocks---still on February.
3. Quilt Grandma's Peacock---still intimidated to work on a precious antique.
4. Make a grocery bag pattern.
Well, break is over. I will be working on these among household chores today!!
