And I'm about 20 hrs into this one & probably have 10 more to go...this is a charity quilt I'd love to finish completely this week so it can be donated to the fire company. I hope it makes them lots of money! This is a "magic" pinwheel quilt made with a homemade ruler. Some pinwheel sections are "proper" and others are just plain old scrappy. I like how my little sampler section went dead center, this was totally designed on the fly and I love it! I'm working on those little 2" square border strips right now (cut from the pinwheel scraps) & then it'll get another black border & then some more of the black, white & red prints. So much for me not being into borders, lol. I have a good amount of one print left for the binding/back. I need to get this larger, right now I'd call it crib size, it should be at least a decent "adult on the couch" size. This is as crazy scrappy as I get, it makes me smile, I think Bonnie Hunter would approve of my use of every little piece of fabric, I leader/ended it too :p I got a great deal on the fabric, it was a pre-packaged kit at AC Moore for a very simple patchwork quilt, $40 but I had a 50% off coupon. They're very nice quality, I added the reds and the black & white dots from my stash.
I'm tired! My studio is a shambles but I got a ton done this week and a few more checks off my list. Thanks for visiting!
Edited to add: after a night of no sleep I was up early in my freezing cold studio working on these :) J & I didn't have stockings, I'm actually planning these as a Christmas morning gift. We don't have any children in the house but I'll make little tiny ones for the critters too. I like the retro-ish fabrics, I used these to make a quilt for J's mom last year. Editing again--the stockings are done, click my blog title to see them :)
