Maureen and I bartered.
I'll make 2 quilts.
For her granddaughters.
I think I have the better end of this barter.
Maureen was here this morning.
I sewed on my quilt for the
Charmed Whirlygig Quiltalong
that I am doing with Cathy.
You know, my friend from Quilting on Turtle Hill.
For the whirlygigs,
I am using 2 charm packs of Frolic
by Sandy Gervais for Moda.
Love these fabrics!
For the background of my whirlygigs,
I am using Kona solid cotton in Eggshell.
Love me some Kona!
I messed up cutting the whirlygigs.
Can you believe it???
I've messed up before.
But, I have already made 2 whirlygig quilts
so I was surprised that I messed up!
It's not like I didn't refresh my memory
on how to make the whirlygigs.
I looked at the instructions
and carefully cut them.
The wrong way.
Instead of 8" blocks,
mine are 6.5 inches.
Not the end of the world, I know.
Not only are the blocks smaller,
but the whirlygigs don't have
as much of an angle to them.
I am okay with them.
The Kona Eggshell is perfect for these fabrics.
I love my Kona Cotton Color Card!
What did he do?
Well, the first thing I saw was this...
Then, I saw this...
(that's my ostrich feather featherduster)
Had to remind myself that he is,
...wait for it...
a bird dog.
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. - Ecclesiastes 9:10
