NO I DID NOT DROP OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH….. crazy summer

I have not blogged in several months as it has been a crazy summer for me. LIFE over took me. I painted the landing (about 800 square feet, partial rooms.) First color I chose was a medium sky blue and I hated it. Made a dark area even darker. I love blue but I hated these room. I then got a pale grey ( almost white) with a blue cast and I liked that much better. There was a side hall that was painted the blue and I ended up glazing that wall with the pale grey glaze. It knocked down the blue color to make it much softer and made a nice blend to the grey walls of the landing. I really like the new painted walls. I tried taking pictures but none look good… I am just not that good of a photographer.

Now that the paint job is done. I am in the process of getting new flooring put in. The main results is not quilting is getting done. That changes this Saturday when I go to our BIANNUAL SEW IN with girls from the guild. I have picked out fabrics for a quilt for my niece’s new home. I think it will be a surprise for her since she does not read my blog.

The pattern is FOCUS POCUS by SWIRLY GIRL DESIGNS . . . here are some links:

Let us be straight …. even though I have purchased the pattern … I am not following it EXACTLY … I had a delicious collection of fat quarters ( all leaves motifs) that I cut into larger blocks and then I resized/redrafted the secondary pattern to fit the larger blocks. I will be putting these blocks on a design wall to hopefully really show off the fabric selections. If it works out I will be posting pictures in the future… SO STAY TUNED.

HAPPY QUILTING,
