You know, I have no idea what I did today. No sewing anyway, I do know that.
My eyes are beset with allergy symptoms. As are my sinuses. So when I took the benedryl this morning (and again at lunch) that set the tone of the day. And of course my ears ring loudly. And when I do my exercises I am dizzy. It will get better.
As necessary, I received the first small gift as Birthday Week commences. A balloon with the perfect sentiment.
I did go to the quilt shop (so far that it is in another city)for a 10 degree wedge ruler, but they didn't have one in stock. So they had to order it for me, which means I have to go back out there next week.
A I was driving home from the Quilt Corner, I began thinking about making a quilt with a piece of fabric I knew I had. I saw a Pickle Dish quilt I really liked on a blog I follow. We talked about how I had purchased Kaffe Fassett's book before the flood to make his Pickle Dish quilt.
All of a sudden I had this overwhelming desire to do this quilt from the book Adding Layers by Kathy Doughty. And I had the most perfect piece of fabric to make it with. I just had to find it.
Of course, I couldn't. I searched everywhere fabric was located. And I had just seen it about 3 days prior.
Finally I was able to put my hands on it. And the motif was larger than I had remembered. So I uncurled those papers in the back of the book and finally found the melon shape piece was adequately large for the La Virgencita.
Don't you love a great Alexander Henry print? These are amazing.
Here is the quilt block I want to put her inside. I need to pull some amazing colors to use for the wedges. Any ideas?
And a background that will sing!
