Happy St Patrick's Day! Today was my father's birthday. He was subjected to a lifetime of green cakes with green icing when I was growing up. Whatever kind of father he was, he always ate those cakes!
I have a finish! And a green one at that! Another of the infamous Baby Quit Series. This one is Baby 9 Patch with straight
in-line quilting. I love it, actually. I finished it while waiting for a friend's grandchild at a birthday party. All the parents were really interested in the fact that I had made the whole thing myself. They asked if I ever sold any, and several thought they might want some similar quilt for a child.
So with another finish, my 12th for the year, I can put another UFO quilt on the long arm frame and count it maybe in March; certainly in April them. I got really good with long straight lines on this last one so I think I need something where I can do another technique.
Maybe the Star I finished on the retreat. Lots of open spaces in that one!
So what will I do this week. Quilt a UFO!
The other thing I want to get started is the Japanese Magnolia branch from my friend Dee's yard. It is the first thing I have done with the new knowledge from that Photoshop class. Are you not impressed?
Do you see where I added the 4th flower to the branch? And filtered the picture as a photocopy sketch so I can trace the parts. I know you are majorly impressed. go ahead, admit it! You know you are/
