Thanksgiving preps are well underway here. Of course that means work for Chris and not me. I feel bad for him because we are going to a friend's for dinner tomorrow but he still has to prepare a whole meal for me. I will not be able to eat much of her meal so I'll bring all of my own food. No one minds or is bothered by it but it means that Chris has to cook a turkey just for me. For me it means that I have a sewing day with Laura and the smell of turkey in the house.
Laura is making lasagna for Chris for dinner and that is a really special treat for him so we all win.
The best news of the week is that I have a new customer quilt to share with you and it's spectacular!
Germaine Wong (she goes by G) of Massachusetts made this stunning wall hanging called Cross Section of Snow Bank. She made this with only 2 gradients! She used Black and Blue Sky. Yo will want to check out her blog, Quilt & Bitch to see the back side of this quilt and to see the rest of her work.
Today I'm working away on postcards and planning to get some drunkard's path blocks made and Laura is starting her new quilt.
As a reminder, here's the pattern and it's from this book. This is a great pattern for a beginner and you could even make the blocks 9" instead of 6" to make it go together even faster.
Here are the fabrics that we bought for her version. The pink is the accent where the blue squares are in the pattern. I think it's going to be very elegant.
I'll be away from the blog tomorrow so I'll post again with the Quilt Along link up Friday. happy Thanksgiving to all of my US friends!
