I meant to get the CLOUD quilt, basted and the quilting started...
and then I got side tracked...
Do you like it when you get sidetracked?
My pal Trudi sent me some made fabric pieces that she
challenged me to make something with.
I had them laying on my cutting table,
staring at me...
I had an idea for hexagons and other odd shapes...(octagons), and already had a template drawn up, so I thought,
"What if I cut up what she sent me..."
and that was the rest of my day!
I made the light purple block first with her scraps that she sent,
and thought, " oh! that would make a nice pillow...."
LOL, 3 more blocks later...
PILLOW? My Patootie!
It's a KING baby or go home!
So, this quilt is officially named my TRUDI quilt.
Today she inspired me, and off I went on a little quilting adventure...
I guess I really do have my head in the clouds...
Hey! Pinch and a punch for the first of the month!
(and no returns!)
...what can I say, I have a ten year old in the house...
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the drawing for AMY'S BOOK!

love your hexagons!ReplyDelete
Oh V!!! You're so inspiring! I like your clouds quilt..but I'm also happy you were sidetracked. ;)ReplyDelete
TOTALLY cute...keep dreaming!!!ReplyDelete
Your cloud quilt is fabulous, I see you changed the border? did you think the first one was too much? Just curious. Yes, I love getting side tracked, some of those journeys are the best! Did you use English paper piecing for the stars?ReplyDelete
You are too funny!ReplyDelete
I like your distraction a lot! A king size will be a good one!
I pieced them with scraps on phone book paper.... small stitch...paper falls away easy...
Then had fun with the Y seams...
Yes I did change the border... I thought the white on white print was a nice final touch of movement around the border,
and I wanted more white space for some lovely quilting!
good eye spy!
Oh your Cloud quilt looks sooooo good. So light and fluffy. Love your new blocks, too.ReplyDelete
For the record, I don't like it when I get sidetracked. I don't have enough room in my little "studio" (how snobby does that sound haha) to have more than one big-ish project on the go at a time. Also, it messes with my Type-A (or A minus) personality...
You crack me up V! I love your king-size enthusiasm. It's going to be a fun one!ReplyDelete
These are so cute!ReplyDelete
What a distraction! You went from subtle with cloud to ZING!ReplyDelete
They are both great! What a beautiful distraction :-) Dristraction is usually good for me... it means my intuition & inspiration are in full swing...ReplyDelete
I get sidetracked constantly, but never end up with something that that! VERY COOL!ReplyDelete
I so love this cloud quilt !ReplyDelete
I guess your customer will be more than happy with it
I LOOOOVE the side-track! I can't over the cloud-quilt!ReplyDelete
You are on a roll, woman! Yep, go for King: is there really a more satisfying size?
