I was glued to my TV for almost 5 weeks watching every single match of the World Cup. I thought it was wonderful. Many upsets, losers, winners, injuries and idiots. So many matches were nail-biters that I found I couldn’t just sit and watch. I had to do something else to distract me a little. Also, in the beginning, watching 6 hours of TV every day during the group stage was a bit too much sitting on the sofa. So I quilted, and quilted and quilted.
I finished hand quilting this one for my friend’s 65th birthday. It’s now in the mail. I can show it here because she is never on the computer.
I made two lap quilts for Halloween.
I made a Christmas quilt.
I cut and pieced three large quilts for myself.
1. The Art Gallery fabric, (big blocks and sashing) was bought at Cool Cottons on SE Hawthorne in Portland. The Liberty of London,(used for the points), was bought at Bolt Fabrics on NE Alberta, Portland.
2. This star pattern was made with Papillon by Moda.
3. This quilt was made with Fig Tree fabric. I don’t usually use these colors for myself, but I love how it turned out. It reminds me of orange creamsicles.
I also made a quilt and something else for a friend’s baby, but can’t show them right now because she DOES look at the web. I don’t want her to see it before her baby shower on August 16th. I’ll show it later.
Of course, now I have to put them on the floor and baste them before I hand-quilt them. I need another marathon TV event to finish all these.
(most of the fabric was bought at Holly Hill Quilt shop in West Linn, Oregon. The quilt fabric from Fig Tree was bought at The Sisters quilt store in Chehalis, Washington)
