The only other thing I have been sewing on is my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap on Flickr. This time we were given some extra criteria to meet. We had to choose to include one of the following blocks (churn dash/shoofly, log cabin, drunkards path, N.Y. beauty, or flying geese) as well as include a solid that wasn’t white. For some reason I felt the need to try my hand at flying geese within a wedding ring block. Why? Because I’m crazy… I think. I’m not sure I would ever attempt this for a whole quilt! But a mini quilt is the perfect medium to try out something new. One day I do want to make a wedding ring quilt of some sort… just not this sort.
When I had the wedding ring block sewn together, it started looking like a party was going on. The dots started to feel like confetti falling on my head.. So I added this GIANT Riley Blake ric rac that we have at work to keep that party feeling going. Now… the ric rac feels like those skinny paper streamers. Haha! Hope my partner likes a good party.
Me? I think I need a nap from all this partying. (still feeling tired, but not completely exhausted like I was)
