Cutting and Piecing

IMG_4598Last week I cut and pieced this quilt top.  I had seen the pattern somewhere on a surfing expedition, and made a similar pattern in EQ8.  The borders were my addition and the color selection.  I wanted to use up the scraps from the Christmas Figs sampler that I finished up earlier this past summer.  I was able to cut all the pieces with the Accuquilt Go.  It was quick and easy, and now I have another top to quilt.  UGH!  looking at the picture I see a green triangle out of place.  I fix it later.

I dropped off “Sew She Did” at the Santa Clara Convention Center yesterday.  I’m planning on going Friday to shop and then Sunday to really look at the show. Of course I’ll look for my quilt first thing when I get there :).  I really don’t need *ANYTHING* for myself, so my strategies may include only bringing a small bag for purchases, making lists of what I have (thread colors) and bringing only cash.  I have to go back Sunday to pick up my quilt after the show.  It always amazes me how quickly they take the show down.  It closes at 4;00pm, the vendors are packing up at 4:01 (sooner if they can) and runners are taking down the quilts and bringing them up to the lobby area for pick up.  Last year mine was in the last bunch to come out.  It’s fun to wait with all the other locals, talking about the show and what they bought.

IMG_4597The feathered star quilt is taking shape.  I started chapter two yesterday, which is the second round of pointy feather thingies. This one is green and tan, I am enjoying working with the batiks.  There is something that satisfies my need for order and straight lines.

Linking up with Denise at For the Love of Geese for “Put Your Foot Down #22” today.

  1. Isn’t it funny how we don’t see our mistakes through naked eye, that it takes a photo to see them. Fortunately you noticed instead of my luck and only seeing them after quilting. I love the quilt and I can’t wait to see what you do with the feathered star. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down. Congrats again on the ribbon.
