Although it rained most of the weekend (and we were grateful for it) I still had a fabulous weekend because I was at the river. It doesn't matter the weather it's always nice and relaxing there and there's always some sewing involved. We even had fresh crabs and shrimp for dinner Saturday. Perfect.
I knew I would not have a ton of sewing time so I took this tumbler project to work on. The original plan was to make a blue scrappy quilt from my hand dyed fabrics. I planned for it to be a simple quilt for one of the guest house twin beds. It was about half done before the weekend and after pondering it a while I decided that I wanted to do a giant applique of some sort on it and that's why the bottom 7 rows are predominately green. I'm picturing a giant sunflower or something like that. Now that I have it up on the wall (and not yet pressed) I think it might be too long so I'll go measure it out on one of the twin beds and see before I proceed with the next planned step. But the way, the cutting for this quilt went very quickly using the GO! 3 1/2 inch Tumbler die.
Since I took my GO! Cutter I also took my scrap bin and the Equilateral Triangle die to play around with that a bit. That die has 3 sizes of triangles and I just cut a bunch of each to play with.
I wish I could remember what I was thinking when I purchased this die! Look that the smallest triangle set and note the size compared to a straight pin. I'm not sure what I will do with these. I suppose it could be a good river project for the next 25 years if I want.
I am making progress on my spiral quilting too. I've finished the teal quilting and will start the bright pink band next.
I will not be getting much done this week. I'll be spending a few days with Mom instead but I might sneak in a few hours quilting on the longarm. We will see. Check out what everyone else is doing at Judy's redesigned blog.
