Brown & Purple dragonfly top
With today being a Monday I didn't get a lot done (I have a yoga class Monday mornings, so don't tend to even get home until noonish), but I did finish backing and edging the Be Mine postcards, and they've gone out in the post. I also made a few nine patches for a group quilt my Thursday group is making. They are 3 inch (finished) blocks. And that was about it, although I did collect this quilt from my longarmer:
I can't tell you how long this quilt has been at the longarmer's - it was a top I gave her back when she first got her machine, to put in her practice stack, but somehow she never needed it. Finally, we decided to just quilt it -I think I might have made the top about 6 or 7 years ago. I made it in purple and brown because of the fabric which is in the border - a purple and brown paisley which my friend Cathi gave me a long time ago. And we quilted it with dragonflies as there are dragonflies in the fabric in one of the borders. Guess I'll have to add that to the binding stack!
And today's post - a metallic card from Jan in AZ (you can't see the metallic fabrics very well, but trust me - it's metallic) and some lovely Japanese fabrics from The Antique Angel - this is my new fabric club for 2008 - I changed from the Fat Quarter Frenzy to this one - it's 16 sixteenths - I decided I'm using a lot of small pieces these days, so it made sense to go smaller...
