Today while in the grocery, I saw the new issue of McCall's Quilting (I think--these magazines are easy to confuse). Anyway, a headline caught my eye: Discover Quilting Blogs. Isn't it nice to feel ahead of the curve? Do you think all quilting blogs will see an increase in hits as a result of the article? I didn't recognize the name of the featured blogger/ author, but Quilt Maverick ring was mentioned.
The Ghost Orchid quilt is finished except for the label, and that is printed and ready to sew on. This detail shot shows a bit of the quilting, which I kept understated. Quilting isn't my strongest suit.
The quilting looks simple, but there were many stops and starts, making it slow and laborious. I do like it, however.
My piece of Hoffman Challenge 2008 fabric finally arrived. I didn't take a picture, but you can see it at the Hoffman Challenge website. I find it interesting that the fabric for the last four years has had basically the same color scheme, in different values and intensities. I know this is true, because I have used one piece of fabric as a coordinate three times, and could use it again if I had any left! Are they in a rut, or am I? Don't answer. Other people see other color schemes, but I always seem to focus on the red violet, although I've combined it differently. Hmmm.
And finally, I had a brainstorm concerning a new project. There won't be any details for a while, because I hesitate to talk about possible totally off the wall (for me, that is) ideas. But I like it so far.
Back to on-line shopping. How many more days?
