Nothing eventful happened today – my eye is a little blacker, I moved some more plants, had a nap while watching the Vikings win, Hazel missed a rat in the barn and supper was yummy burned hotdogs on the grill.
I finished this small quilt measuring 38” x 38” in fall colors just like the original in this book.
It’s one of the first quilt books I ever bought and all these years later I still admired this quilt called Hopscotch and Butterscotch. I checked Thrift Books online and it’s available for $4.79 in limited quantities.
I think it’s one of the hardest quilts I’ve ever made and some of my corners are not perfect
Piecing those borders of quarter square triangles was very hard to keep accurate —- I really met my match. It’s going on the longarm tomorrow, I hope. I do love it however and I’ve never made anything in these colors – I still have some fall left to enjoy it on the wall or the table.
Reader quilts –
I also completed this rug today – I only needed to weave the ends through. I have put it off for months and I love these rugs. I have several more nearly completed and I’m on a campaign to finish them for Christmas gifts. Anyone want to join me in a “rug along”?
The Rugs From Rags book is available only by mail – not online. Sadly when we recently reprinted, the price of the book had to go up. The book and DVD together will now be $24.00 including shipping. Young people who like to work with their hands would enjoy this – new fabric is not necessary – cut up some old clothes or linens into strips. Directions to make the simple frame are included in the book.
That’s all, Gals – I gotta concentrate on the baseball game.
