Finishes & Starts

I'm cutting binding! yippeee! I love a good finish!  Time to sit and watch all my shows in the evening on TIVO and bind my quilts... JUSTIFIED is back on tonight... WAHOO!  Love that show....Mentalist...  Like that one too...  I will get this binding sewn on, so I can finish it by hand... fabulous!

I've had a bunch of projects to finish for Feb 1st, AND I have Jury duty next week,(GOTTA HAVE HAND WORK!) so I am cruising to get things done...  I will be heading to Minnesota, mid February for my Mother's heart surgery, (on Valentine's day! I hope that is a good sign!) and will most likely be offline... So... Maybe a few posts from my iphone... and the weekly COLORFUL INTERVIEWS.

Are you in MN, in the MSP area?  Say hi, maybe we can have coffee if I get a break...   I do plan on seeing a few friends in Minneapolis.  I'm preparing a lot of hand work to take along with me!

I started a new project.  TRIANGLES GALORE tutorial ...I put the tutorial up on 15minutesplay if any of you fabulous peeps want to join me... I'm not rushing them. I'm taking my sweet time and making two blocks a week.  Join in and you can add your photos to the 15 MINUTES PLAY FLICKR group.
I'm soooo loving how they are turning out. I think I may make 12 of these blocks, then add onto it ...and give tutorials along the way...   You'll have to be patient with me, as you all know I don't plan anything in advance..I'd change it 50 times, before I ever made my decision on what and how it will all live together...
I guess that makes it sort of a mystery quilt... Or more, "Victoria's regular approach to quilt making!"

You may recall, It's the block I used for the OPERATION UNIFORM BLOCK...I had fun figuring it out, so thought it was time to PLAY with it a bit more... and GO BIG AND BRIGHT!

Anyway... If you like, or not, whatever works for you!
I'm good with that!

While Pat was here, we were on a mission to find SOFT fabric to make some infinity scarves...
I made mine up last night, and am wearing it today...  
Quick easy and well, my neck is warm, so Mission Accomplished!

happy quilting!

  10. Hi Victoria--love the new website look! Nicely organized and easy to read.

  12. Love those triangle blocks... am adding to the ever-expanding "gotta make some" list. Hope all goes well with your mom.

  13. I really like that Triangles Galore block. I see them in a project. Now I need time. I made several Infinity scarves for gifts this Christmas and two more this past week. If you have time while in the Twin Cities, check out SR Harris Fabric Outlet in Brooklyn Park. A friend who does theatre and dance costumes goes there regularly. You will find lots of stuff for Infinity scarves. :-)
