I used another piece of my challenge quilt on this CUFF. Somerset Studio's Belle Armoire magazine is running a challenge right now calling for them by June 15. I do plan to send it in for consideration! A cuff can be worn on the wrist or ankle. Mine would be worn on the wrist. Not my wrist however! I am just not that rockin'!
This is a mini quilt I made for a Kathy in CA. I didn't get the measurements before I mailed it Friday but approximately 18"x 10". It looks wonky in the picture but it was straight & square! I drafted the little house pattern for paper piecing. If you look closely you can see where I hand stitched in center of each neighborhood" and on binding. I also did pebble-y free motion quiting on border. I will get one from her next week, so I will post it then.
A little Zentangle-ing. I like the gridded layout. I like the separate & DIFFERENT doodles in each chunky block. I especially like 2nd from right in the middle row...a CROWN & swirls. Every time I look at these I think how cool they would look as free motion quilting.
I have 2 CQ RR blocks to stitch on. One is the mermaid block swap. Carolyn is an artist, a painter, and her block is beautiful! She included some lessons on depth of field so I hope I successfully employ those directives!
I have less than 4 weeks before I travel to Manchester N.H. for the annual HGTV retreat. There are 70 ladies from all over the states and even 1 from IRELAND! I have to use the provided FQ to make something for the challenge. I am not inspired by the novelty cow themed fabric. I plan to make little baby booties from a SIMPLICITY pattern. I will have to use a felted lining to give them structure.
I also have to make a T-shirt that will be my NAME TAG. It should reflect your state in some way. Many idea's. I want to reconstruct it first...even if it's just to feminize the fit. I thought of adding fabric to sleeves & bottom; cutting to make into cardigan style; printing a map image of my town in NYS. I will probably wait til a week before to make both of them!
