After a long hiatus from quilting, I am finally back! I just wasn't feeling it. Then my daughter asked me to make a quilt for her friend who is suffering from Lymphoma. I started it, then took a week off, then went back to it a little bit at a time, but it is finally finished. This is the Depression Block that I made the Missouri Star Quilt way. All of the squares were on the bias. I think I prefer the way I made this before using the rulers and cutting the half squares from strips, or the normal half square triangle technique. I don't think time was saved using their technique. I was trying to find the tutorial to link to it, but was unsuccessful.
I made this quilt using this tutorial. I was disappointed with my colors in the photo. They looked much better, thankfully, in person. This baby quilt was for new co-workers who just had a baby. Since I work from home, I didn't even know that they were expecting!
I bought this cute little scooter at a flea market a couple of years ago, just because. I couldn't find any info about it anywhere. I decided that I wanted to find a plug for it, so I must have used different search terms this time and discovered that this is a Pottery Barn Kids Vespa Scooter Light. I still didn't find a plug to use with it. It has a round port to plug the cord into. I don't know if I can take it somewhere and just look for a plug to fit or not.
Well, I have a few hours until I have to babysit again. I want to straighten up my sewing room and begin working on a quilt I am making for my step daughter. Lacey just earned her Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice (I think that's what it is.) I wanted to give her something other than money. Something that she will remember. I let her select the colors-yellow and gray. I think I am going to use the Fire Escape quilt pattern. I may play around with it on EQ7 first to see if it will work, or maybe I will just dive in and hope for the best! I had to buy all of the fabric for this because my stash is pretty limited on modern prints. I don't' want to mess it up and am uncertain if it will look pretty. I think I better do a mock up in EQ7 after all!
