The fish are done but I didn't get them attached to the border yet and I've decided that it isn't going to get done this week because Sadie liked playing with them too much. She can't relly hurt them, so I figured that I'd just work on something else. Here's what I chose.
This is another UFO that is pretty darn close to being finished. I remember when I was working on this (not an actual date or anything, but just in general). This was maybe the second quilt that I made blindly - no pattern and no real idea of what I was doing. I must've been thinking about writing a pattern for this because I have all kinds of notes about cutting, piecing, pressing, etc. I also have notes about doing this in the exact opposite way (black background and colored stars). I really like this, especially the bright colors and pieced border so I think I'll evaluate this, finish it, and go ahead and write the pattern. I'll probably also make this with the black background because I found the stash of black to use. Besides, that will probably help me to write the pattern. (Good excuse, right?) :-) I'll keep you posted on the satus of that; but don't hold your breath because I have no idea when it will happen.
Now on to the giveaway. Here's what's up for grabs this week in my final blogtoberfest giveaway .
This week's winner will recieve:
1/2 yard of Pat Sloan's Sweel Liberty by P & B Textiles
1/2 yard of Nancy Gere's Uncle Sam by Windham Fabrics
1/2 yard of the red star fabric by Judie Rothermel by Marcus Brothers
Simply Patriotic pattern by Me (Joanne Hubbard)
1 package of 10 Wonder Clips by Clover
I'm excited about this giveaway! I used each of these fabrics in my 15 Honor Flight quilts and I really like them all and thought you might also. Since the fabric was patriotic I thought that the Simply Patriotic pattern was a perfect match. An finally, the Wonder Clips. I love these things! Here are some pictures of how I've used them.
And look how wide these clips open. Can we call them wide mouth clips? Open wide!
