Finally! A New Quilt!

Charlene and I were playing with the iPad the other day and we came across a quilt we both fell in love with.  And I think Ann wants to join in with us.  And we don't have to purchase a single piece of fabric!  A total win for everyone!

It is the Paperweight pattern.  We have begun to collect some dark white on black fabrics for the back.  And I am searching my templates for a ruler that will do without me buying a special one just for this quilt.  I have the triangle but am still looking for one that is shaped like a kite.

I may have to try my hand at making a plexiglass template using my woodworking tools.  {PattyA, have you ever done this?  Any tips?} I figure you would be the one to have done it!

I am excited to be working on new while I am still getting the UFOs out of the way.  I go back to this post which began my friendship with Landscapelady.  I feel so happy to be doing new work.  It clears my mind.  And it allows me to do what I want to do, not what I have to finish up from the past.  Look to forward!

And I have a couple of small hangings to test out for Judy.  So things should be moving right along here.


  1. That looks like a fun quilt! I can't wait to see your results. :)

  2. I have never made a plexi template with my workworking tools, but I am pretty sure that is what you would use. You would have to sand the template edges to get off any burs. Please be careful that the piece doesn't slip and keep your fingers away from the blade if you use a miter saw!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
