I’m on the road again…this time heading to Houston for Quilt Market and International Quilt Festival. I’ve got one more state to go through before I hit Texas.
Louisiana! A great place I got to call home for a couple years. I has been a l..o..n..g drive so far but I’m super excited for both shows!
I made up some kits for Festival using my “Done by Three” pattern. I love how it turned out. There will be a limited number of kits. When they’re gone, they’re gone. I have not done kits for several years, so I’m looking forward to the feedback. The quilt it below!!
I used 16 fat quarters and it went together in about three hours…YES, that is right!!! I did have help with pressing and cutting. (Thank you Priscilla and Cheryl!) We had the blocks together and arranged in just over an hour. I quilted it on my Nolting longarm and I’ll put the binding on in the next couple days. FUN and funky!
#1- get some of your quilty friends to help make a quilt. It sure goes together much quicker and you’ll have fun doing it!
I had to get a bit creative tonight for my dinner. No plates…the ice bucket lid worked just fine! It was more important for me to sew on a binding than go out to eat. Pizza delivery! Perfect after long day of driving. (I think there are some tips in this paragraph….no time to cook…order pizza!)
Speaking of kits, I’m participating in the Festival Shop Hop again this year. I can’t show my quilt until Festival opens, so stop by the booth (#100) and take a look! I’ll post pictures of my block and the quilt after Int. Quilt Festival opens next week.
I realized I made a play on words in the title…I’m bound for Houston and I bound a quilt tonight…!
